I come from a community in North Dakota where at one time there was a Rahn family; but in my youth there were only two brothers left in town - both had changed their surname to Rohn. Do you know what influenced this change?
I can only conclude that it was easier to say or it had something to do with an English influence. Was there any folklore left behind to explain the change in your family?
