doesn't roll off the tongue real well though.


Rolled off my ex-wife's tongue pretty easily, don't know the spelling, but pronounced "i-ya" (hard i) seemed to be a regular utterance in "what has he done now?" type situations.

Spelled "Ayah". and yes your ex is pronouncing it correctly. However, my daughter wants us to use the long A which is technically incorrect. The name shoud be spelled "Aya" for how she is sounding it out but she thought the "h" on the end made the name cuter. Go figure.

She wants the long A for the first A or the second?

I-yay?

The problem with the current trend in made up or unusual names is that it pretty much dooms the person to a lifetime of having to pronounce and spell their name for people - often multiple times.

The upside is that they won't be one of four "Susans" in their history class.

Actually I missed some significant context in my previous post, my ex-wife was Malaysian of Chinese descent, her first language was some dialect of Chinese, and the "term" she used pronounced "i-yah" was clearly a nag term in her language.

You also have to factor in nicknames both good and bad.

I've already nicknamed her "Ahab".
