Gen-ee-see-uh and Ky-laur-ee
This is definitely my randomest post ever. In my subconscious of name related thoughts, these two names surfaced very mysteriously. So I was wondering if there was any route I could take to legitimize them. I dislike the idea of a made up name, but these two mysterious monikers will not get out of my head! So what would be the best way to spell out Gen-ee-see-uh and ky-laur-ee?~Larissa

Thanks, I like Genisia the best for the first name. The problem with some of the second choices, is that I fear people would take Kail to sound like kale instead of ky. Would Kylari work? or would you pronounce that ky-lair-ee?

I wouldn't pronounce Kylari the way you want it, Ky-lair/lar-ee feels somewhat more natural for that spelling.Marko | Susanna | Kit | Rosemary

I do that too. I have sounds come into my head and I go "OH. Is that a name?" Then I search and search and when I can't find it, I make up a spelling and go with it. It's how I ended up with Etrean, Ellenwen, Anese etc.
For the first:
Genesee is a similar name and Genesea seems like a good way to go. Or Genesia.
Genistra is also close. So maybe Genisia.
Or maybe Genysia?
For the second:
Kylari is a good idea but I would have said Ky-lair-ee
Kylauri looks nice and ensures the LAU pronunciation.Mother, Hellenic Pagan Priestess, and Resident Greek name expert ^_^ Call me Dantea or Remy
