    How to pronounce Deirdre?

    I like this name better as DEER-Dree, but some people say Deedree, Deedreh, or Deerdreh. What's your favorite?

    "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,
    Mischa.

    I think DEER-druh is my favourite, though I like DEER-dree as well.
