How do you pronounce your screen name?

Phoenix is pretty easy: Fee-Nicks. And others are very straightforward too. But some, like Ajidahk (sp?), are less so. I dig the name and assume it's pronounced AHJ-i-dock. It's similar to a Biblical name.

So if you have a more unusual screen name, how do you want it pronounced?

    If you speak Spanish, exactly the way it looks: saIris, as in sa-i-ris. For English speakers, it is like sah-ee-ries (the last part sounding like the end of series or queries). However, I've been called what sounds like Cyrus for a long time, throughout schools. When I just need to introduce myself I will use that pronunciation to save repeating myself. So, it's up to you. ;)

    It's her name spelled backwards, so whenever I see it I automatically think Kadijah.

    Mine is simple....Sarah Marie. I love my name, but it is so common. It seems like everyone has either the middle name Marie or Elizabeth. (My sister got the Elizabeth)

    Ajidahk is my name, Khadija, spelled backwards. My friend and I were playing around and he wondered how my name would sound backwards. I never thought of saying my name backwards and thought it would be great to use it as a sceenname. It's pronounced ah-jee-dak. I dunno, I think it's kinda sexy. Lol

    rudeechick = rud-ee-chick
    sairis = sigh-ris
    cympreni = sym-pree-ann-ee (okay, i know it's totally not spelled that way but that's how i've been pronuncing it in my head)
    rouquinne = roo-qwin

    I love your real name, that's so pretty. Backwards is cool too. Have to admit that I kinda glaze over when I see unfamiliar letter combinations...mind doesn't want to take the extra second to absorb it, but I like ah-jee-dak.

    Rou- never knew that about rouquinne.

    i never tried to imagine what Ajidahk sounded like, it's like the prince symbol to me. no sound. :)

    i have been called nahdeenah (og version), but in my head it's naydeena, accent on the nay.

    i call myself naydeena irl too. like on the phone, hey it's me nadina, how are you. actually, i think i say that most of the time. haha.

    but my real name is Reana, which is Ray-ah-nah. I sometimes wish I could go by Ducky in real life, too. It's much easier to say.
