Thread: pronouncing Noemi
April 15th, 2013 02:00 AM #1
I have been liking Noemi lately, but realized that I might be saying it wrong. From what I've found, I'm seeing conflicting information about it's origins that are throwing me off a bit. Is it French (as it's on several lists of French names), Spanish AND Italian as suggested by the name's page? Does it differ if the "I" has an accent?
Is it two syllables or three? Said no-MI, NO-mi, No-eh-mi, no-AY-mi, or something else? If you have a source for your pronunciation, can you please share real life examples or a link?
Thanks so much!若兰
I'm just a third-culture girl with an affinity for names.

In Spanish it has an accent on the I and is three syllables. No-eh-MEE. I speak Spanish and teach Spanish so that is my "source" for that

It's one of my favorite names!Mi corazón

Noémie is the French variation, yes. Said noh-AY-mee, if I'm remembering correctly. French classes seem like a decade ago, haha. And Noemí is the Spanish spelling. I've never really come across it in Italian, I really wouldn't know about that one.
