I found out that I'm having a boy and I'm absolutely ecstatic. I've been in love with a specific boy name for years now, but now that I'm finally having a boy I'm having doubts about whether people will be able to figure out how to say the name by the spelling alone, and if it's too unique and he'll get teased or something like that, especially since his sisters have more common names (Maya and Lilah). Anyway, the name is Kairan (maybe changing the "a" for an "o", but I'm not sure yet). The pronunciation would be "K-eye-rin", with a soft "i" like with "in". When I told my grandma about it earlier and spelled it for her she told me people would think his name was Karen and give him a stigma. I'm also in America, so I'm not sure if that matters since I know countries pronounce letter combinations differently. I chose the name/spelling based loosely on the Greek centaur and teacher Chiron, and one of the ways to pronounce it. I loved the name and his story, but didn't like the spelling, and one variation of the spelling of his name is Kheiron but I thought that looked too much like it'd be pronounced "Key-ron" so I opted for a new spelling, but obviously now I'm not too sure on that spelling anymore. So yeah, I'd like some opinions on the spelling, or even just the name in general. I have a backup that I was in love with before Kairan that I can fall back on (Zander), but I kind of have my heart set on it and want to find a way to make it work, even if I have to tweak the spelling a little more. I have no clue on a middle name too so I can't give any input on that for spelling, and if you have any neat suggestions for a middle name I'd appreciate that too Sorry for the long post, and thank you.
