    What do you think of Stefan?

    I like the name Stefan, pronounced STEFan not stefAWN. Or to put it another way, Stephanie without the -ie. If this is the pronunciation I am going for should I spell it Stefan or Stephan? I always thought that the spelling Stephan was commonly pronounced as Steven, which I really don't like. Like Stephen King.

    I love it! And would definitely use it IF I didn't have a friend named Steffan. I think the single F should suffice, and I don't care for Stephan pronounced either way.

    I pronounce Stefan as "STE-fahn" like they do in Europe. For the pronunciation you're looking for, I think Stephan is the better choice.
    All the best,

    I pronounce Stefan as "STE-fahn" but I think Stephan might be mispronounced as Stephen if people just glance at it.

    I think Stefan is your best bet. Stephan/en can go either way. There's a popular NBA player named Stephen Curry, 'stef-an', but every Stephen/Stephan I've known IRL was 'steven'.
