Carys vs. ?

Would this name be mispronounced too often? Would that make you not want to name your child it? I pronounce it CARE-iss as my child would if I choose too name her this. It’s Welsh and means beloved.

That’s how I pronounce it. It might get mispronounced but I don’t think it would too often. It’s a great name.

I’ve always pronounced it "care-iss" and I actually new a little girl with that name. No one really pronounced her name wrong. I don’t think it would be that much of a problem.

You will just have to educate people about how to pronounce it. Lovely name

I know of another Carys, but she uses the Greek spelling (can’t remember what it is but I think it may start Ch?) If I loved the name I would use it anyway, but would probably experiment with spellings to see what would generate the correct pronunciation the most. If having the name mispronounced is a big concern to you, I’d choose a different name. I am also considering a girl name that I think may be mispronounced, but I love the name so I think we’ll use it anyway.

I think the sound of Carys is adorable and so pretty. However, I would never consider it with this spelling because most people will say it like the word "carries." I’ve a friend named Marys, pronounced Mare-iss, and she gets "marries" all the time.

Depends where you are from, however the proper welsh pronunciation is Cah-ris.
