    Aeryk?

    I was volunteering at my church's nursery for the toddlers today during the service, and I saw a little boy with a name tag that read Aeryk. When his mother came to pick him up, I find out it is pronounced just like Eric. I cringed when I saw Aeryk on the name tag. Poor child. What do you think of the name?

    I figured that was the pronunciation but feel really sorry for that poor little boy. I'm sure his parents had their reasons, but I'm guessing most people (like me) will never appreciate them.

    In my accent, "Aer" and "Er" in Aeryk and Eric would be said differently, the latter is a much shorter sound. So Aeryk is strange to me. I like Eric and Erik better.

    Same here, Aeryk would be air-ick to me and Eric more like Eh-rick, the traditional spelling would have a much shorter sound. I guessed the parents were trying to get at Eric but the A at the start changes the pronunciation completely for me.

    I agree with essjay.
