Esther! I went the longest time thinking the th was pronounced like th in thimble instead of the hard th in thyme. I was so disappointed when I found it was ess-ter instead of ess-ther!Audrey Cecilia - Jude Alexander - Christian Nathaniel - Violet Annabelle - Felicity Charlotte - and introducing Isaac Benjamin

I mispronounce names all the time. I like Lucia, but many in America pronounce Lucia Loo-sha instead of my favorite Lou-see-uh. I also fell in love with Marcia prn Mar-see-uh. I was so disappointed when I found it was Marsha. Then there was also Catriona, which I thought was Cat-ree-own-uh. I also read Alicia has Uh-liss-eah, which was kind of weird considering I had a childhood friend named Alicia prn Uh-leesh-uh.
This doesn't have to do with pronunciation but more about gender. When I first heard the name Ezra, I thought it was a girl's name through and through. Then, a few years later I called the Biblical Ezra a 'she' in Sunday school and much to my dismay it was a boys' name. I am normally all against boys' names on girls, but I honestly never imagined Ezra as a boy.

I really like Scottish names and for a short while had Llewelyn on my list.... until I learned how difficult it was for me to say.... nearly impossible! Not "lou-wellen" but starting with a breathy h sort of sound. Kind of! :-)
