    Lightbulb Pronouncing Seren?

    I think the name Seren is really pretty and it means "Star." (Which could be an alternative to Stella.) I was wondering how y'all like it pronounced and/or how you first read it. On it's nb profile it has the pronounceation has it as Seh-ren but reading the comments some others pronounced it differently; like Sair-ehn. What are y'all's thoughts?

    I read a book with this name in it, and I'm pretty sure it was pronounced "Seh-ren"...

    I thought it was SEH-ren but I'm open to being corrected by a Welsh person. I pronounce Karen with the first syllable like a in cat. Is the Kair-en pronunciation a US accent thing? I don't think I've ever come across someone saying Kair-en for Karen.

    SEH-ren is what I have heard. A native Welsh speaker would roll the R.

    Karen sounds pretty different in a UK accent than in a North American accent.

    I would say SEH-ruhn, and agree with the comments about Karen. I say Ka (like in cat)-ruhn, not Kair-ruhn, but I'm in the UK. I do have a name on my list (I came across in a book) similar to Seren and that rhymes with Karen, spelt Saren.
