    Again, no. Lol. That's just like Carys but with a 'KEH' sound. 'KEH-riss.'

    I'm American and I pronounce Carys with a short a as in cat - not care-is. I'm from New York. I also don't pronounce Ariel like air-ee-el, or Carrie like care-ee. And I don't pronounce Erin and Aaron the same way. It's the merry-Mary-marry thing. In some US regions, they sound the same. To me, they are completely distinct.

    What so different?

    I've had people debate me on the pronunciation of my own name, Tara. "It's TAH-rah, not TAR-ah". It's basically the same sound so it's not a big deal. Plus writing it out doesn't always capture exactly how a person is pronouncing the name. I pronounce "care-is" and "keh-riss" the same way.

    How do you pronounce carrot? In Canada carrot is pronounced "care-ret".
