How to pronounce Deirdre?
I like this name better as DEER-Dree, but some people say Deedree, Deedreh, or Deerdreh. What's your favorite?Raevyn, a pre-teenberry.Proper names are poetry in the raw. Like all poetry they are untranslatable. ~W.H. Auden

I pronounce it DEEr-dree and I think that is the proper one.

"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,
