Kyan is a quintessential twenty-first-century name, a twist on the twentieth-century standard Ryan. Kyan is used by the grooming guru on Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, Kyan Douglas (born Eddie), and increasing numbers of parents.
Oceanus (oh-KYAN-ohs) Kyan, in the middle there, isn't kee-an. The K and the Y slur together with the AN sound on the end. While that's the Greek pronunciation, expect that everyone will say ocean-us. Oceanus is the Titan of the river that encircles the Earth, the font from which all fresh water comes. With the abundance of swimming during the summer, it seems appropriate. The only child born on the Mayflower was named Oceanus.
