Thoughts on an unpopular name?

What do you think of the name Hayon? I’ve seen it as a last name but never as a first name.

Does this name read as hay-on or ha-yon? [name_f]Do[/name_f] both sound too strange?

Should I just go with more popular [name_f]Hayley[/name_f]?

I’ve never seen Hayon before, so this is a first for me. I don’t particularly like it but it were being used as a first name, I picture it on a boy more than a girl. To me, it has a very masculine sound.

I prefer [name_f]Hayley[/name_f], though popular (but not overly popular), I don’t think you’d have the problem of running into 8 others in her school classes unlike [name_f]Ava[/name_f], [name_f]Olivia[/name_f], [name_f]Sophia[/name_f], [name_f]Averie[/name_f].

I pronounced it Hay-on when I read it, but I’ve never seen/heard it before. If you like [name_f]Hayley[/name_f], I’d just go with it: it was popular in the nineties, but not so much now. I’d consider it kind of a surprising choice, actually!

I read it Hay-on, I’ve never heard it before. I think with time it could grow on me a bit.

[name_f]Hayley[/name_f] is actually not all that popular currently, so if you really like that then go for it!

Or maybe you’d like [name_f]Hazel[/name_f] or [name_u]Haven[/name_u]? [name_u]Haven[/name_u] has a similar sound, but I prefer it to Hayon.

I’ve never heard it before but I read it as hey-on which sounds like the beginning on a sentance, not a name to me. [name_f]Hailey[/name_f]/ [name_f]Hayley[/name_f] isn’t popular at all right now I only know one person under the age of 19 named Haliey.

You could search on name berry’s serch engine for girl names beginning with Hai and Hay to get more names with similar sounds.

Hayon is not usable. I would strongly recommend going with [name_f]Hayley[/name_f].

What about Haylen? Has a similar sound.

I agree that [name_f]Hayley[/name_f] is common, but I do think Hayon sounds rather masculine.

I think Haylin sounds a lot more feminine and is also similar to [name_f]Hayley[/name_f] if you really love it. However, it is not as popular as some so I think you could get away with it:)

I pronounced it as HEY-on, which does sound like the beginning of a sentence. [name_f]Hayley[/name_f] is great, though!

I also like [name_u]Hayden[/name_u], and the suggestions of Haelyn (just how I would spell it).
