There's a basketball player for K-State named Cartier, that's really going for it, kinda like Platinum or Nucleus.
Looking back at the first post
You were not really serious about going DBZ on your poor child?
You pronounce it VikTEEM.
My preferred name for a girl is Aoibhinn. It's pronounce, kinda like, Eve-een. It's comprised of two parts - Aoibh, which means beauty or radiance and also protection. The second part - inn, means little or small. The name as a whole is actually a Gaelic verb - to love.
That word is almost unpronounceable in Latvian, where you pronounce words as they are written.
As they are written? But, sure, the way a letter is interpreted to sound like varies in every language. For example, in German, 'J' is pronounced 'Y', but that's just how they interpret it. It's still 'the way it's written' from a German person's point of view.
Riverdance? That's a bit stupid. :bugeye:
No, I mean, you can not pronounce a word differently than the letters in it say.
A=[A] and B= not like in English A=[ei] and B=[bi].
I'm not linguist and am terrible at explaining these things.
You can pronounce each individual letter separately and in Latvian (and other eastern European languages) it will still be pronounced as that word.
Example: S. A. U. L. E. will be pronounced exactly as the whole word SAULE (Sun).
So in Latvian it would be meaningless to write: this word such and such is pronounced like that and that.
But, to an Irish person, that would be pronounced Sawla, because that's how they see those each individual letters, even if they did sound out each letter.

Out of the pages of posts, I suggest Cairo or Orion for a boy. I like 'Orion' cause I actually know an Orion. Nice fellow, quite the ladies man. He, however pronounces the name Oh-reeon; it works Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image!
Keep in mind it should blend with your surname. I can hardly bear it when parents ignore their own surnames and end up with a child name like "Marcy D'Arcy" or "Saul Paul". Maybe they think it's funny?
