    @smith207:  oooh that’s how you pronounce it. Honestly I didn’t consider that as one of the possible pronounciations.  So you may want to consider that he’ll always be having his name mispronounced, (which isn’t the worst thing but still)

    It’s not a terrible name but most people won’t be able to pronounce it correctly (or spell it either) and as PP pointed out, it rhymes with demon. Not good. What else do you like?

    How do you pronounce it?

    EDIT: I’ve had this window up for a while (scarfing down food as I’m on WB)… so I see how it’s pronounced now. I was scared they would call him “semen”. Baha! 🙂

    If you spelled it Aemon people would be more likely to say it correctly.

    It’s not terrible.  But I think Americans will have a hard time pernouncing it.  What about Damon?  Its the same just has a D in front of it  just a thought!!

    I love the name! It’s on my list of names for my future hypothetical children.

    It’s 100% pronounced Aa-mon.

    But if you spell it Aemon it’s pretty much a totally different name – I’d expect some Greek heritage with a name like that.

    I suppose any unusual name is always going to be mispronounced. My FI’s name is Enda – as simple as it sounds – (N-da) – but in any dealings with the States they always assume he’s a woman called Edna! He definitely doesn’t enjoy that.

    What about Evan? I’m biased because it’s my son’s name but I love it so much. Worst thing is that some people call him “even”. Not too awful though:)

    If you both like Eamon, then how do you feel about Deamon? It would fit in better but is still unique and has the same sound!

    I knew a kid named Eamon when I was growing up (and not in a high-Irish-heritage part of hte country) and it was so NOT a big deal.  I think people are overselling the problems with pronunciation, spelling, etc.  The way it works (as with so many less-common names) is that on the first day the teacher might mispronounce it, but after that it’s fine.

    I don’t mind as a name.

    but I think agree with the issue of pronounication. Your kid will always have one of those difficult names and be constantly spelling it for spelling and correcting them. If you love it your kid will survive, but I know some people with unusual names find it very frustrating as they go through life.
