      Spelt as ريان? Then you'd pronounce it as: Rayaan.

      Soufiane?
      سفيان Would be: Suf-yaan

      Faris?

      As salaamu alaykum,

      I dont think it'd be pronounced as Rehan/Raihan because there's no Haa/7aa there?

      And what about Faaris, is this an Arabic word ??
      Yeah, I think so.

      Rayan = Rai-yan or Rayyan
      in arabic ريان there is a "shaddah" on "y" which reads as letter "ي" , I dont know the english word for it but it looks like this in arabic " ّ "

      the rest as other said
      Soufiane = Suf-yan

      Hicham = He-sham

      Mikaeel and Mika'il = Me-ka-eel

      Faris = Fa-ris
