Pronoucing the word '-ean'

This simple question was asked by 1 of my sisters (Eunice Sang) last few days and I don't know how to answer her. Well, it's kinda funny. Try to pronounce the following words:

1. Clean
2. Bean
3. Lean
5. Dean
6. Mean
7. Jean
8. Sean

Spot the difference? Does the name 'Sean' sounds like 'sin'? I did not do any research, but then come to think of it, it's weird. The pronunciation was different, it is because 'Sean' is a name? And I remember there are some words out there which are similar to this situation, but I can't think of it for now. Simply drop by a comment if you knew the proper answer(s).
