Opinion vs. on vs. Synne
I heard the name Synne and sort of fell in love with it. But my mother pointed out that it sounds like sin. We aren't christian so it doesn't bother us but do you think it would cause issues for her in the future?

Sorry, but I don't think I'd want my name to be Synne/sin. I also think it would be mispronounced. I would read it with a long i sound with the e at the end.
^Agree with above. Others will hear the "sin" even if you don't.
It looks pretty, but if its literally pronounced "sin" it would give me pause
Non-christians can sin, so I don't see that as a reason to disregard the fact that the name is pronounced the same as 'sin'. Don't do it.
No to Synne.
You could pick something similar, like Lynn.
As a non-religious person, I totally understand and agree that the Christian significance wouldn't mean much to me and phonetically, I find it very pretty as well. Unfortunately, I think you would run into a lot of inconvenience or judgment with it even just with the unfamiliar spelling. If you are interested in names that seem similar, I love the Irish name, Sive (or Syve or Sadhbh). It is still rather unique but may pull less negative opinions.
Regardless of the religious aspect the word Sin has a very negative feeling, I wouldn't want my name associated with that kind of a word
I think Synne has a lovely meaning. While yes, some people may think it's some trendy spelling of the word "sin", I personally wouldn't let it stop me from using the name. The name has nothing to do with Christianity and is not offensive to a religion. People will always have opinions and be judgemental, so I wouldn't let it stop you from using a lovely name.
Maybe u can name her something close to synne and then call her synne as a nickname. Maybe u came name her Synnie Like Cini!
How about Cindy nn Synne? Or spell it Syndi? Cynthia and Sinclair would be alternatives that you give you the option of Synne as a nickame. Possibly Sydney as well.
I really would not use the name phonetically "sin" no matter the spelling. I actually don't think of sin as tied only to Christianity. To me it seems a universal truth that every one of us "sins" in that we all violate our own conscience at times, regardless of what external authority you may or may not ascribe to.
On another note, I do know a girl named Sim, just Sim, so perhaps you would like that.
