    They said it as 'yahn-toe' on Torchwood. If there was an 'ee' sound at the beginning it was so slight it was barely audible.

    Hi Ash! I love Ian on its own - I love the Celtic "flavor" and its history. How about Ian Charles?

    I do like Charles! My mom always dreamed of having a little Charlie, but my dad hated it, so she never got one. So I'm quite happy about the prospect of giving her a little Charlie, but I already have Everett Joshua Charles, Bailey Oscar Charles/Bailey Elias Charles, and Charles _____ _____ "Charlie" on my list already, so I feel like Ian Charles would be a bit excessive.

    I like the idea of Ian James, but the semi-filler James isn't usually my style, and I have no clue what I'd pair it with. I had thought maybe another "J" name, but I can't really think of anything else I like.

    I never seen the pronunciation you said. - In Wales and in the Welsh Language Ianto is said Yan-to. So the EE is wrong I can see where you get it from because Ian is said EE-an. So people would atomatically assume it's said the same as Ian but it's not.

    I think Ian works best on it's own,though Florian nn Ian could work. Ianto is intriguing,but a little too complicated for the vast majority of Americans. Maybe as a middle name?
