Quoting momma melissa85:" <blockquote>5. I like and I've heard cee-in b4"You've heard this name before! I am kinda guessing on the pronunciation 'kye-in' (thinking like the Cai from Caius since it has similar origins), but I can't actually find any sources to tell me the original/correct pronunciation. If you've heard this name before, do you know how they decided to go with that particular pronunciation (cee-in--- by the way is cee-in like 'sea'/'see'/'C' - 'in')?
Quoting momma melissa85:" Ooo I like ky like kai or khai right? Ky-in?
Those are unique and I kinda like em all but I love the sound ah-may-us
Yea, we're thinking it might be pronounced Ky like Kai or Khai... Ky-in... Seems most likely based on the origins I've discovered, but it's a super uncommon name and hard to find many details on it. It's an old name, been around for at least 1500 years (maybe more), but it's a hard one to learn much about.
I quite like the pronunciation for Amias as ah-may-us too, though I think if we choose this name we'll go with um-EYE-us as it seems to be the 'correct' way (as far as I can find), and feels to me to be the most intuitive pronunciation.

Idk how to spell it. anna-may-us. I like that too"I haven't heard that name before. Not bad. I tend to like a lot of these ancient Latin names. They feel historic but not antiquated, ancient but not outdated, unique but not 'out there', intelligent but not pretentious, cool but not trendy. I just can't imagine not choosing an ancient, historic name.
