For some reason I was pronouncing Aurelia like Aw-re-ell-yuh, with an extra "i" in there. I really liked that pronunciation.“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies. The man who never reads lives only one.”

@bethlow, I'm glad I'm not the only one with Aisling issues. I think we should start a petition to have the pronunciation changed.My darling Marian Illyria Aphrodite, March 2013 & Little Bunny (a girl!) due 9th of February 2014

My solution when this happens to me is to change the spelling so it IS the pronunciation I like. Ha.I’m just trying to behave as I think a friend should behave. Granted, I haven’t had much practice.

I love that movie!!
I always pronounce Emilia as ema-leah instead of eh-mil-ia because I know a girl named Amelia and I don't care for her, so I hate that pronunciation. And i'm a little bias since my name is Emily and I like it better
And I won't rant about it again cause I have been all over nameberry but I'd like to just tell everyone who even thinks of using the name Linnea not to unless they have a swedish connection so they can actually hear how it's supposed to be pronounced because American's are butchering it so badly.

I never understood why so many people liked the name Declan until I realized I was pronouncing it wrong. I was pronouncing it "dee-CLAN" instead of "DECK-lin". I also though Ewan was pronounced "EE-win" until just a few days ago. Now I know it's pronounced "YOO-in". I thought Siobhan was "SE-oh-bahn" for a while. I mispronounced SO MANY Irish names. Now that I know how some of them are pronounced, I can usually figure out the correct way to pronounce ones I've never seen/heard before. Nameberry is a life-saver. lol There are still a few names I can't quite pronounce, and NB doesn't have the answer. Lorelei is one of them.Madison, 13-year-old name nerd!
