I was wondering how you lovely berries would say some these. I wouldn't want to use them and then find out I've been saying my child's name incorrectly.
Gawain: Go-wen, Ga-WAYNE, GWAYNE (like Dwayne)
Tadhg: TEEG, TAY-g, TIEG (Tie with a g sound)
Leif: Leaf or Layf (rhymes with safe)
I like Ga-wayne, Teeg and Layf (not spelled those ways). Would it be odd to use them as middle names even if they're not the proper way to say them?

I'm not sure of the correct pronunciation of Gawain, but I would guess Ga-WAYNE. I'd probably pronounce Leif as Leaf and then wonder if it should actually be Layf!
I knew a Tadhg, so I know it's pronounced TIEg - I think it's a pretty cool name, even though everyone would say it wrong.
I knew a girl called Sian who pronounced it Sigh-ann, instead of shaan. It was a bit odd, but everyone accepted it...I do generally think it's best to go with the correct pronunciation

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