    Quade: Can it be pronounced in Spanish??

    I live in a city with many native Spanish speakers, so I try to find names that will work well in both English and Spanish (thus why I debate Sidra and Calla even though I love them).

    So, anyways, is there anyone that could tell me if Quade would be easily pronounced by native Spanish speakers?? I know the "qu" is pronounced as a k in Spanish, so that doesn't worry me... It's the "ade" that I wonder about. I'm concerned Spanish speakers would pronounced it "kwahd" like quad

    The others I hold close.... Quade ~ William (Liam) ~ Dresden ~ Giordana ~ Lydiana ~ Laurenza ~ Vivara ~ Fonya ~ Sagelle

    Spanish speaker here! In Spanish this would be like kwa-de. Sort of like 2.5 syllables. The kwa would,be like the beginning of quad.

    My guess is that most Spanish speakers would probably pronounce Quade as either two syllables like "KWA-day" or or three-syllables like "KU-ah-day". Most letters are pronounced in Spanish so I'm thinking the three syllable option would be more intuitive.
    All the best,

    That's what I was afraid of!!! Poo!! I really love the name Quade.

    Thanks for both answers

    I have known Hispanic people named James, John and William, so maybe even Quade could be accepted and the pronunciation understood ??
