    My 4 yr old's name is Ewan. We have had people call him Ee-wahn when reading his name, however, they are usually easily corrected. I have more trouble when making introductions! I have found that people change names they don't know into the closest name they do know! So, when I say this is Yew-an, they say back You-ing. I guess between Ewing, NJ & Patrick Ewing, they can deal with that name better than Ewan!

    I would have thought more people would know Ewan McGreggor! But Star Wars fans have no problem with the name at all!

    Are there people who don't know who Ewan Mcgregor is these days?... Travesty.

    Some might have an issue at first upon reading it, but I think once told how to pronounce it, they would be on board very quickly. It's a great name!

    I know everyone here is familiar with Ewan because of Ewan McGregor but I can't speak for the states I'm afraid.
