How to pronounce Deirdre?
I like this name better as DEER-Dree, but some people say Deedree, Deedreh, or Deerdreh. What's your favorite?Computer issues took me away from this site, but I'm back--and starting fresh.
New, more classic name list in progress!

"DEER-druh" and "DEER-dree" are both acceptable pronunciations in English. I knew a Deirdre when I was young and she pronounced it with the "dree" ending so that's my favourite pronunciation of the name.All the best,
