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

    Soufiane?
    سفيان Would be: Suf-yaan

    Faris?
    فارس : Faa-ris

    Wallaahu a'lam.

    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
