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?If I had a baby right now they'd be:

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
