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.Caitlyn | Emma | Sophie | Holly | Elodie | Jennie | Catherine | Gwendolyn | Isla | Freya | Edelle |

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).

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.
