    Alaric: How do you pronounce him?

    Alaric is a fun name with lots of vowels and some medieval charm! I met one other other day for the first time, but he pronounces it Uh-LAIR-ic. I always pronounced it AL-are-ic in my head and my second choice would have been Al-ARE-ic, so I was surprised. Are all of them viable options and how would you say it?

    Girls: Lucy, Elena, Lake, Sylvie

    Boys: Jack, Eamon, Sylvan, Theo

    I was told it's pronounced Uh-lar-ick so that's how I pronounce it. Before I was told that I was pronouncing it Al-uh-rick. I'm pretty sure Uh-lar-ick is the correct pronunciation as I've heard a couple different people say it that way, it's just not the first one to come to mind when you read Alaric

    I was saying it sort of like al-ah-ric. Of those up there, I prefer uh-LAIR-ic but I think they're all sort of right. -- My Amazon Author Page

    I've only ever heard it ah-LAIR-ic. I'm so jealous you met one! I adore Alaric.

    AFAIK, it should be AL-uh-rick (as in, my professor of Roman history referred to the Visigothic king who sacked Rome this way), but i like the way Uh-LAIR-ick sounds better.
