    I don't know that the pronunciation would be a huge issue, lots of names have various pronunciations. Maya, Alicia, etc.

    I love it, I'd never heard it before. But I agree that it will probably mean a lifetime of telling people spelling and pronunciation.

    It's personally a bit grand for my taste but if it's a name you love then go for it.
    When I'm testing out names I try to picture bub as an adult using the name, perhaps written on a billboard or accepting an Oscar 😂. If they decide to be a tradie or politician will the name still suit.

    Not a fan. For me personally having people mispronounce her name all the time would frustrate me. I'm all for unusual and uncommon names, but wouldn't like having to correct someone regarding pronunciation my entire life. The name itself also doesn't appeal to me, but she's not my child, she's yours. Go with what you love.

    Thank you. That's a great name too, never heard it before, which is good

    I love it!

    If you use it though, right from the get-go tell all your friends and loved ones how to pronounce it, and as soon as Preschool/School comes on the scene, tell them too, that way everyone who is close to her will say it correctly (as you have chosen) and everyone else who doesn't know will obviously have to be corrected.

    I wouldn't know how to pronounce it.
    I'm not really a fan, sorry.

    I love it (it's my cats name - but she just gets boo now). A difficult one to pronounce we say boo-a-da-see-a. It's certainly different.
