How do you pronounce this name?
I am loving the name Orion right now but not sure which pronunciation is the best or the most common. Do you pronounce it Or-ee-un or O-Ryan like the constellation? I like the first pronunciation better but I'm afraid that everyone will say it like O-Ryan. What do you guys think? How do say this name?Married for almost 2 wonderful years and dreaming about starting a family in the near future!

Sorry to anyone who read TSI. First draft was terrible. Second drafting now.

If I don't think about it I say or-ee-on / or-ee-un, but I don't like this pronunciation so I do my very best to consciously say o-rie-un (like the constellation). I think O-rie-un sounds much nicer, as to which people would say first, I think it depends a) where you live, and b) the kind of people who are reading your child's name.Current Loves: Tobias Henry and Sebastian Keith
