God is gracious

If you like the name Sean but worry that it’s easy to mispronounce, consider the spelling Shawn, an Americanized version that has been around since the 1970s. It's pronounced exactly as it looks (it rhymes with “dawn”). Shawn is friendly and wholesome and can work for either gender, though male Shawns (like pop sensation Shawn Mendes) greatly outnumber the females.
