I've seen the name 'Carys' lately on the polls... how do you pronounce this? Is the "s" silent? Is it just like "Cary"? Please help... and thanks!
I've always said it (CARE iss) but most name guides say it is (KAH riss) like Karissa without the -ah.

But yeah, you pronounce the 'S'

I would say Ker-iss...but I'm southern, so our dialect is weird...it's kind of like we run everything together. We say ta-may-ta instead of toe-mate-o, if you get what I mean.

I say it so it rhymes with Paris
I pronounce it that way too. I love Carys, even though I really hate Paris as a name (because of Paris Hilton and the fact that I generally dislike place names, especially for little girls). lol

I pronounce it the same as Charis (the Greek word for "grace"), so rhyming with Paris
