How to pronounce Deirdre?
I like this name better as DEER-Dree, but some people say Deedree, Deedreh, or Deerdreh. What's your favorite?
Some boys' names (GPs or not): Draco, Jericho, Evelyn, Cirrus, Mason, Seraphim, Neil, Eustace, Trip, Pike, Sasha, Evander, Lachlan, Harlan, Linden, Vivian, Artemis, Jefferey, Leaf, Hansel, Adrian

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,

I think DEER-druh is my favourite, though I like DEER-dree as well.Miriam ~ Helena ~ Estella ~ Beatrice ~ Anastasia ~ Alice ~ Marilla ~ SarahPaul ~ Wesley ~ Walter ~ Edmund ~ Isaac ~ Abram ~ Gabriel
