Thread: How to pronounce Dashiell?
June 12th, 2013 06:58 PM #6
I love Dashiell! I agree with the others--I say DASH-uhl, but I've heard the more proper French pronunciation (and the way Dashiell Hammett said it) is duh-SHEEL. While I'm usually one for going with the proper pronunciation, I think it's just too much effort to enforce dah-SHEEL. Plus, I love the sound of Dash-uhl, and I think Dash is adorable! duh-SHEEL nn Dash doesn't make quite so much sense.Ashley

The first time I heard this name was a few months ago on a fresh newborn baby. at delivery, asking the dad what the name was he said "Dash-EE-elle". Huh??? Then mom yells "i've told you so many times, its dah-SHEEL!!!!" I thought she had made up the name for sure.Henry & Edmund
