It's just the way I want to pronounce it because I like it along with the spelling. I'm not trying to start a fight here, and I appreciate your input, but you do not seem to understand where I'm coming from.
I am not Welsh, so therefore I do not need to pronounce Carys/Cerys that way. And even if I wish, I could still use whichever pronunciation I want.
I do familiarize myself with names before I decide to discuss them.

Yes, you've already explained how the American (think Chicago-area) propensity for long vowel sounds is an unacceptable affront to the Welsh language. (at least, that's what I gather from the "it's not an accent thing" comment) Kah-riss would sound like a midwestener was attempting to sound British. We pronounce things differently. With no intent of disrespect.

Exactly. Over in America, we tend to "American-ize" names. It is not disrespectful nor lazy.
It's just conforming it to our culture.
I guarantee you that even if I encouraged the KAH-riss pronunciation, nobody would use it.

How would they/you pronounce words like cavalry and cascade or the name Callum, out of interest?

Sorry to anyone who read TSI. First draft was terrible. Second drafting now.

I know a girl who spells it Carys. Out of your options, that's the one I think is easiest to read but also cute.Judah / Isaac / Malachi
Aaron / Rowan / Ezra / Liam
Rori / Isabella / Rylie /Delaney
Alexandra / Phoebe / Emmeline
