Sen? Could use some back up on this!!

So I’m part Vietnamese and hypothetically if I were to have a daughter I thought maybe I’d want to incorporate a name with that nationality. More than likely it’d be a MN.

So, the name [name]Sen[/name]. Supposedly it means lotus flower in Vietnamese.??

So how would you pronounce this name?

Is it silly to use this idea?

Any other good easily said Vietnamese related names?

I don’t think it’s silly at all if it represents your ancestory! I’m Welsh and will definitely use at least a Welsh middle name so I understand :slight_smile: Would you want it as a first name or middle?

I don’t know anything abotu Vietnames names but I found this awesome website:
