Okay, I know I'm not the only one reading names and saying "It looks nice...but how do I say it?"

Any names you wanna as the pronounciations of?

Rhys (I have a friend with his surname and its pronounced "Rish" but that cant be right...can it?)

Calliope (It too me forever to figure out this pr)

Nevaeh (Ive heard both "Nah-vay-uh" and "Nah-vay" has pr for this.

Mikhail (do you like me-kyle or me-kayl better?)

Calliope-Cal-ee-oh-pee :) I looked that one up a while back. I had that problem with Aaliyah! Why such a complicated spelling for such a cutesy name? I like Aleah better :) (because I can get the pronuniation easier, lol) ~Had
