what does everyone think of the name Ki'rhin Azariah Neloff...sibling names are Trenton Isaiah, Josiah Zakkai, and Auroraleigh November...his nickname would be Kai

How do you pronounce the first name? Because looking at it, I would assume that it was like Kieran but the nickname Kai is throwing me off.

I am in the same boat. I'm not sure how to pronounce it. If it's like Kieran then I think it flows fairly well, but I'm not sure.

Ki'rhin Azariah Neloff
nickname Kai

The first syllable of Ki'rhin and Kai are both a long i sound, right?
If I am saying it right, I like the way the names sound together. I also like how it sounds with the siblings. However, apostrophes in names are not usually my preference and it seems out of place with the sibs. I will keep thinking of another spelling suggestion, but I don't have it right now!

I love the name Kai, but I agree with everyone else that I'm not completely sure how to pronounce the name. The fact that there's an apostrophe really throws me off and makes the name look made up imo. If it is pronounced like JennyB suggested with the long I sound I think that it fits nicely with your other children. One of my GP names is Kyrie which I think would go great in your sib set. Some other suggestions are Kieran, Kylan, or Kyler...or maybe even Kyrhin or Kairan. Hope this helps! :)

I feel the same as the others, looking at the name Ki'rhin I wouldn't have guessed it was pronounced the way you intend it to sound.

Maybe try...
Kyrinn (feels a little feminin though with double n)

Other suggestions...
Malachi (you can still use Kai as a nickname)
