    Proper pronunciation of Carys?

    Is the first syllable pronounced like the word "car" or like the beginning of the word "carrot"?

    Yep. I must have posted this about a thousand times now but: http://www.forvo.com/word/carys/ There's no 'care' involved at all just a short 'KAH' sound followed by 'riss'.
