    Also, I loved the name Mila until I realized it was pronounced "MEE-luh". I thought it was pronounced "MY-luh".

    Here in the Netherlands we would probably pronounce this as A-loh-wee-see-us. Does that make sense??

    Well I definitely like your way I like it for the middle spot so won't have too much confusion with pronunciation hopefully, plus I'm Scottish, we always say things strange

    I pronounce everything with a slight Danish or French accent with often can cause some misunderstandings. I only just recently realised that English-speakers pronounce Maude/Maud as Mawd; whereas I have always presume that everyone pronounce it the French way (I'm absolutely unable to spell things phonetically, but for people who don't know what I mean).
