Here are the options I've come up with...any sound good to you?

Boy:
Cyrus (pronounced See-roos)
Bijan (pronounced Bee-szan....the 'j' sounds like the 's' in vision)

Girl:
Leila
Elnaz (nickname Ellie)

I already have a boy named Maziar...nickname Mazi.

Thank you!

Cyrus will always be mispronounced at first. I read it as Sigh-russ as it is commonly pronounced here in the US. If that doesn't bother you it's a great name! I like all those names

Cyrus will be mispronounced if people see it written without hearing it.

I went to school with two brothers named Jian and Bijan....I have always had a soft spot for those names because of them. Bijan gets my vote for boy name!

I'd pronounce Cyrus (sigh-rus) I don't care for the other pronunciation. Bijon is to close to dijon mustard for my taste.

I like Leila. I don't care for Elnaz if I'm pronouncing it correctly (el-naz (like in has)).
