Thread: Is it useable?

  1. #11
    I'm going to add in that I'm not sure how to pronounce it. Also, I keep thinking "irony."

    Love Idony!!! I have seen it spelled Idonea, too, but I think that one might really have pronounciation issues. I would pronounce it like EYE-da-nee/IDA-nee.

    EDIT: Yes, like Irony but with a D.

    This was the word association that popped into my mind when I heard it. It's not a lifelong problem, but it would certainly raise pressure when being called on in elementary school. (She's NOT going to want to say "I duhn know", you know?)

    I like Ida. Similar sound, less baggage.

    Wow. I would never have associated it with many of the words you ladies have mentioned and I appreciate the heads up! I'm pronouncing it EYE-da-nee but perhaps this is wrong given all the comments about no idea how to pronounce it? I was sure I would get mixed reactions but more nays than yays will give me something to ponder. I like the suggestion of Isolde; she has been on my list for some time but I thought there may be pronunciation issues there too. I really appreciate the feedback. Any other suggestions?
