    How do you pronounce Rowan?

    Just curious to see how different people pronounce the name Rowan.
    The only reason I ask is because I asked about the combo Rowan Annaliese, and a few people said that the names run into one another because of the –an/an-
    They run into one another on paper, sure, but not spoken. At least, not in my pronunciation of them.
    Rowan in my accent is pronounced more like Ro-wen or Ro-wynn. And Annaliese, like On-uh-lease.
    Do others pronounce it Ro-anne? Or is it simply on paper that they run into one another?
    It doesn’t really matter, as we have chosen to use Rowan Elizabeth to honor my sister, I’m just curious.

    I'd pronounce it Ro-un An-uh-lees, so the two syllables would be pn differently enough that i think it could work

    I would say Row-uhn and Anne-uh-leese, so I don’t think they run together too much.

    I say ro-an and ann-ah-leez. Never heard anyone say ro-wenn or ro-wynn, though I don't dislike those versions of the name.

    I say it like RO-wen and I’d say Annaliese like ANN-uh-lees (Anna-lease). They don’t run together at all. Love the combo!!

    I'd say row-un anna-lease. I don't think they run into each other when said out loud, not that it matters too much as middles aren't often said out loud with the first name. Rowan Elizabeth and Rowan Anneliese are both lovely combos!
