  • I'd pronounce it See-nan. But to me it sounds more like a type of medication than a name...

  • Is it Keenan? And no, not especially. It looks like it's trying too hard to be Gaelic.

  • first I thoughe See-nan like Anouck said, but I think it's supposed to be pronounced Kee-nan
    I do like the name, but I don't like the spelling

  • I agree with Susan, my first thought was Keenan.  I wouldn't use the name but it's not my baby, lol.

  • It is supposed to be like Keenan, but I want a "C" name. So not sure how to spell it. Or any other "C" name ideas that aren't too common? For boys....

  • I was thinking See-nan. It's cute but I think that you and the kid will spend the rest of their life correcting people. They will also not be able to find things that are pre-printed with their name on them...that was always a dissappointment to me with a strange spelling for my name.

  • I kind of like Corbin, and I really like Connor... But my husband shot both of those down. He likes Colt (I HATE it), Colby, Colton, Cormac.

  • Why not spell it Ceenan?

  • I can see Keenan in that spelling, but I prefer Ciaran and Cian personally.
