my name is miyan and ive had my name butchered all my life. ive gotten everything from 'mymom' to 'meeyawn' to 'myrel' (a clever combination of my name + my sisters' name: mirelle) its difficult to pronouce, ill give you that, and its almost impossible to spell a hebrew name in english. it just doesnt work, so i have multiple nicknames that turn my head. some of my which include:
yan, yonni, my, spy, spyon, lulu, blondie, bun
only if you're wondering...my name is pronounced ma'ayan & it means a spring of water in hebrew.
