I was just wondering how you guys would pronounce the name Alyse just by looking at it?
Me and my SO are having a hard time on names this time around and are disagreeing how this name would be pronounced. TIA
amdraza:A-leese (with a long sounding A).
yes,. what she said :D
hsunij:Sorry if i dont describe this right! :) but it looks like "Auhh-lease" is that right?
BetsyDavis:That's exactly what I was going for but my SO was coming up with sounding like Alice. So I was confused because Alice isn't what I would register it as.
Nope, they're completely different. Alice is just that...Alice (it's my name actually). I read the name as A-leese.
Sara*n*Ryan:Ah leese. I like it spelled Elise, better. With the spelling you used, I would think people would either stumble over it or might even say Alice.
This is how I would pronounce it. I cheered with a girl with this name, and it's how she pronounced it.
I would say it like A-lease or Alice.
If you're going for Elise, then spell it correctly. If that's not what you're going for then I'm sorry I can't help.
Crash Into Me:I would say it like A-lease or Alice.If you're going for Elise, then spell it correctly. If that's not what you're going for then I'm sorry I can't help.
This is my cousin's name- we say "uh-lease"
ETA: And she doesn't have problems with people saying Alice...Not when she lived on the west coast nor when she lived in the midwest.
