Help needed on final name! Aren or Jens?

Which name for a baby boy with Danish heritage, [name_m]Aren[/name_m] ([name_m]Ah[/name_m]-ren) or [name_m]Jens[/name_m] (Yhens)? I realize [name_m]Aren[/name_m] may be mispronounced [name_m]Aaron[/name_m], and [name_m]Jens[/name_m] will be likely pronounced as it sounds, the American version. But time is up and these are the two names that have survived the process so far.

[name_m]Aren[/name_m] [name_m]Lev[/name_m] Kellogg
[name_m]Jens[/name_m] [name_u]Elias[/name_u] Kellogg

Any thoughts, suggestions would be much appreciated!!

[name_m]Hi[/name_m] orca, I am really liking the flow of [name_m]Aren[/name_m] [name_m]Lev[/name_m] Kellogg. I think [name_m]Aren[/name_m] [name_m]Lev[/name_m] is quite handsome and if occasional mispronunciation isn’t a big deal then I say go for it!!

[name_m]Jens[/name_m] Kellogg sounds possessive to me, i.e., [name_f]Jen[/name_f]'s Kellogg not mine; also when I hear [name_m]Jens[/name_m] pr. “yhens” I think “yens” as in “really wants” or “Chinese dollar.”

Thus [name_m]Aren[/name_m] [name_m]Lev[/name_m] gets my vote! Yay!

I like [name_m]Aren[/name_m] better than [name_m]Jens[/name_m].
I think people will sometimes say [name_m]Aaron[/name_m] but I think this slight correction isn’t that difficult
to wrap their brains around. People learn how to say and spell [name_f]Siobhan[/name_f] correctly [name_m]Aren[/name_m] won’t be such a big deal.

As much as I like [name_m]Jens[/name_m], I think [name_m]Aren[/name_m] [name_m]Lev[/name_m] is lovely :slight_smile:

[name_u]Elias[/name_u] could a middle name for [name_m]Aren[/name_m], so:

[name_m]Aren[/name_m] [name_m]Lev[/name_m] Kellogg
[name_m]Aren[/name_m] [name_u]Elias[/name_u] Kellogg

Any thoughts on these? All much appreciated!

I like [name_m]Aren[/name_m] [name_u]Elias[/name_u] better than [name_m]Aren[/name_m] [name_m]Lev[/name_m] but both are handsome.

I like [name_m]Aren[/name_m] [name_m]Lev[/name_m] :slight_smile: I like [name_m]Jens[/name_m] as well, but not quite as much as [name_m]Aren[/name_m].

[name_m]Aren[/name_m] would be my choice. I’m actually really like this name and may consider it myself!

I prefer [name_m]Aren[/name_m] [name_u]Elias[/name_u] but I like [name_m]Aren[/name_m] [name_m]Lev[/name_m] as well :slight_smile:

My vote is on [name_m]Aren[/name_m].

I would vote for [name_m]Aren[/name_m] over [name_m]Jens[/name_m] only because of the J / Y pronunciation.

Thanks so much for the suggestions!

Have narrowed down to:

[name_m]Aren[/name_m] Eilas
[name_m]Aren[/name_m] [name_m]Lev[/name_m].

Have a few more days…
