Iain sounds like ee-ain/ee-ayn, eun sounds like ee-un, in Scottish Gaelic, I mean. I suspect a lot of people's confusion comes from Iain being pronounced like ee-un in English, same as eun is in Gaelic, and/or people not realising Iain has a different pronunciation in Gaelic than in English because they think they know what Iain sounds like based on how it's pronounced in English. I have no problem hearing the difference between Iain and eun in Gaelic, eun in Gaelic and Iain in English however, I might struggle with as that can sound identical.
