Pronunciation of Everett
This name has been on and off my radar for awhile now, and I just got thinking that this name could easily be said with two or three syllables. So I'm wondering how everyone here says it? Curious if I named a son Everett if he'd always have to correct people! Also, what are your overall thoughts on the name? Opinions on the nickname Rett? Thanks!

It's not quite one or the other. So 2.5? But I think technically 3.

I agree, I think it's technically 3, but most will run the first 2 together making it sound more like 2. Ev-uh-rhett becoming Evh-rhettTop Names: Benedict Calvin & Noelle Geneva

I say it with two syllables, and so do the Everetts I know. I'm in the South, if that matters.

I say it with two syllables, as well. MAYBE almost two and a half, but it's not even that pronounced. I wouldn't have a cow if people said ev-er-ett, but that just seems like too much effort, like my mouth is trying to add an extra syllable to it. I feel the same way with Charles being pronounced CHAH-ruhls. It's Charles. One syllable. Maybe one and a half. And Graham. No matter how much I love everything British, I can't get my tongue to say GRAY-um. It's Gram.Ashley | namenerd | Christian | storyteller
