    How do you pronounce this name?

    I'm thinking of using the name Nerea for one of my main characters, and I want to make sure I'm pronouncing it right, so I can pick a new name or change the spelling before I get to far in. I'm pronouncing it ne-rhea. What do you think?

    Rhea like Ree-ah or Rey-ah?

    Neh-ree-ah was my first thought. Or Nee-ree-ah. Or Neh-rey-ah.
    I’m just trying to behave as I think a friend should behave. Granted, I haven’t had much practice.

    Wow I didn't know two people could share a username, I feel like this is going to add to some confusion on the board.

    Edit nevermind, I see now that my username is showing up where other usernames should be but I'm not sure why. Is this because of the changes to the board?
