    How do you pronounce Sloane?

    it's probably very straight forward but I see Sloane popping up on forums all the time. I've never heard it pronounced before... Is it "Slo-ah-nee"? Or "Slo-anne"? Someone please put me out of my misery.

    I've always just pronounced it as a one syllable name that rhymes with "bone."

    I pronounce it the same as frustratedauthor. I've only ever heard it pronounced like slow with an N on the end.

    Yeah, I agree with everyone else. It's just like the surname, SLONE, one syllable, hard "O" sound in the middle and the "E" is silent.

    That sounds really masculine to me. I've never seen anyone with this name before and In name berry women often say "this is my favourite girls name". Weird. I must be living in some foreign country ; ) thanks everyone for the clarification.
