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! :blush:

I've always said it (CARE iss) but most name guides say it is (KAH riss) like Karissa without the -ah.

in aurstalia carys/caris is as said above rhymed with paris, kar-ris, however i think in the states the a may be subbed with an e (for ease of saying) ie care-is/cerys

It's a Welsh name. I have heard it both ways as Katie-Nana mentioned. Care-iss rhyming with Paris is the one I hear most often. It is also how I've heard Catherine Zeta Jones pronounce her daughter Carys' name. Catherine is Welsh so I think that is the way I would pronounce it.

Katie-Nana is right, it's pronounced "Kerris" / Care-iss.

i dont think there is a right and wrong way esp because of accents its like in aus megan is pn differently i fine in the us its may-gen and in aus tara has really got the uh sound but in the states its more of an e sound. i find even my name my american frends find hard to pn, as its not brit-ney its bri-ta-ne. so i think it depends where you are from with pn the name :blush:

Lol, I as an american certainly do have a hard time saying brittany as bri-ta-ne :L But, I suppose it does have a lot to do with where your from! :wub: I definitely say it as CARE-is, rhyming with Paris :P

Gosh, now I can't stop sitting here going bri-TA-neeee, trying to get it right! :blush:

I would think Brittany would be Brit TA nee , and Brittney would be Brit nee

...curiously I know a girl named Brittnay who pronounces it Britt NAY.
