    Renan/Renon

    I found these names when looking for a full length name for the nickname Ren. I actually started with Renan as he would have an awesome namesake in climber Renan Ozturk, and was disheartened to see it was a spelling variation. We're both climbers and would love to tie our kids to the mountains somehow, but I don't love spelling variations or the original which is Raanan. I also saw on another site that it is a variation of Ronan? But I do love the sound and look of Renan the best. Then I saw Renon which is a completely different name, and I'm not sure about it.

    What are your thoughts on both of these? Renan is pronounced (at least by the real Renan I know of) as ren-ahn which is my preference. How would you pronounce Renon? The French in me is saying rey-no-ne (and it is a French name).

    What middles would you pair it with? Do you know any other names to get to the nickname Ren? How would you sibset from my signature?

    I think Renan and Renon are great names. However I knew a Renan who was from Brazil and so pronounced his name Hen-non with the H sound, so actually I would probably pronounce it that way the first time as I've never met any others. My understanding is that Renan (with H sound) is a somewhat common name in Portuguese, but I'm not sure.

    I think with either spelling you'll have to teach people how to pronounce it, as there will be a tendency for people to say Ree-nan or Ree-non. Renon might be more likely to be pronounced Re-nahn. Another spelling variation would be Rennon - like Lennon with an R.

    Some other names that might generate Ren as a nn:
    Renwick
    Renald
    Renton

    What are your criteria for middle names?
