Re: How would you pronounce the names:

I have kindergartners with both of those names right now. They are pronounced "Key-ah-nuh" (middle syllable is /o/ like the short o sound) and "Kay-den". That was also how I assumed they were pronounced when reading from my roll sheet (not having been told the pronunciation) if it makes any difference.

Re: How would you pronounce the names:

I agree with everyone else about Kianna, but when I saw Kaiden I thought it would be pronounced Ky-den...like so it rhymes with widen.
