    Rian boy name

    Hello,

    Any thoughts of the name Rian ( pronounced Ri-ahn) for a boy? I want a name that can be pronounced the same in both Albanian and English which is why I don't want to spell it Ryan because it will be completely different in both languages.

    When you say you'd pronounce it Ri-ahn does that mean like Ryan or more like ree-ahn? Sorry to have to ask.
    Otherwise, I like how it looks

    Ree-ahn is how it would be pronounced. Should have spelled it that way instead of ri-ahn.

    I thought that's how it was pronounced - I like the sound then too!

    I read it as ree-an, which is very similar in both sound and looks to the Welsh girl name Rhian. Ryan is rye-an, which sounds distinctly masculine to me. So it sounds like a girls name to me, but I imagine that association is not as prevalent for those not from Wales.

    Rian or Rían is actually the Irish Gaelic spelling of Ryan and rightfully pronounced like you want it to be. It is a male name. Was considering it too but we have a lot of Ryan’s in the fam. I love it though! For either gender!

    Its a cute name and isnt gender specific and its unique so go for it.
