Cheyenne?  Cy-anne?  Sean?  Sign?  What the fuck is this name?  Who created this shit?  How do you say it?!?!?  Help!

Get used to it little Cyan — the only time anyone will ever pronounce your name correctly is when they get lucky.  Enjoy a lifetime of correcting and explaining!  Thanks Mom & Dad before you go to bed tonight!

I wonder if the people who used this name actually realise that it’s a sort of light blue colour? Why not just come out and call the kid Blue? I mean, Red and Ginger are names, so surely people think they can get away with it…

They probably saw it on the ink catridge for their printer and thought it sounded pretty.

There’s a character named Cyan in a Norwegian comic called Nemi. Character is cool enough, sure, but there’s absolutely no need to give a kid that name unless it has cyan hair from birth too.

Cyan-ide, is what he’ll take from all the hell he took all those years.

Ergo Nomic got it right. It’s pronounced like the “cyan” in cyanide. I have a friend with this name. Doesn’t mean I like it, but I do know the name. She always tells people, “It rhymes with Ryan.”

I was named because my dad is a photographer and my mom liked Cyan more than Magenta.
