English term or phrase: Gian
Gian is the name of my husband, I need to know how his name looks in hebrew. It sounds like this-(gee-on). Hebrew seems to be a very complex language when it comes to the vowels, please help.

Explanation:
The above is gee-on:

gimel [+apostrophe] - yod - alef - vav - nun [final form]

Ashley,

The apostrophe after the letter gimel (=g or G, there are no capital letters) is needed to make the sound gee, otherwise it sounds like the g in \'great\'.

Isn\'t Gian pronounced gee-un, though?

That would be

gimel [+apostrophe] - yod - alef - nun [final form]

ג\'יאן
