    Taliesin

    I just found this name on britishbabynames.com and am utterly in love. Can any Welsh berries help me pronounce it?

    tuh-LYE-sin, tally-ES-in? TA-lis-son?

    Also, could an American boy make it work do you think? Or should it go to the middle?

    I'm pretty sure it's Tally-es-in. I love it, but the prn isn't natural, so I'd use it as a middle only.

    Not a Welshie, but as it's on my list (and I've conferred with my W friends) I know hoe to say it... tal-ee-AY-sin.

    Tally-es-sin. It's also the name of one of Frank Lloyd Wright's homes in Wisconsin.
