    I'm Russian and all English teachers here teach us to pronounce the "er" endings as "ah". But I pronounce the "er" like "er" myself.

    I've seen names ending in -ER being spelled with an -A on Australian lists, I think. Like Tayla instead of Taylor (even though Tayla is used in North America, too, but is distinct from Taylor, and is considerably less common).

    I like the Aussie accent It's natural that names are going to sound different in different languages. ERs sound like As in Essex and Cockney accents too Another big one is the 'O' sound, like in the names Scott or Oscar. In most (all?) BE accents it's a very short 'o' sound, but from what I've heard of American accents, it becomes a draw-out 'AH' sound. It's interesting, not wrong! It only starts to irritate me when people decide on yewneek spellings which only work in their accent (Masin, Devin, Ellowyn etc).

    @lucia both Taylah and Tayla are pretty common here. I have also seen Rydah and Jaggah (girl)

    What? Don't you know what Australian accents, British accents and American accents sound like? Australians and Brits say Ry-dah and Americans say Ry-der. We don't pronounce our Rs and Americans do.
