Kateri vs. Pronounce?

Please leave a comment about how you would pronounce this name when you read it. I know how I would like to pronounce it but not sure if I (my daughter) would end up always having to correct pronunciation. I don’t want to do that to her.Thanks for your time!

With the middle syllable pronounced like tear (as in tearing a hole in your shirt).

I agree with poster 3.

Kuh-TEH-Ree probably
but I can think of multiple pronunciations and honestly would be at a loss if I saw this name on my class roster.

kuh-tear (like I tore the box in half)-ee

Thanks for your input everyone. I like to pronounce it Kate-er-ee but had a feeling most would say Kuh-tear-ee. I think I’ll choose another name. :(

Kayterry could be the way to spell your pronunciation.

This is mt daughter’s confirmation name. We pronounce like poster #2. That’s the way the priest pronounced it as well.

I actually have a friend with this name, spelled the same way. She says it Cat-er-ree. I can tell you right now that absolutely no one will ever say or spell it correctly. She gets so annoyed with it. It’s a pretty name, but I wouldn’t dare use it after seeing first hand how people butcher it.
