A Liar may..

Horrid!

SirChenjin Mon 20-May-13 17:00:26

I think I am not at all surprised.

A liar may occasionally surprise everyone and tell the truth.

A liar may say "what a lovely name"

GetOrfMoiLand Mon 20-May-13 17:01:01

Oh god it's a shite name. Bless them and everything but bloody norah.

FingersCrossedLegsNot Mon 20-May-13 17:01:52

One word...classy hmm

SantanaLopez Mon 20-May-13 17:16:55

Oh dear.

Bleugh shock

farmersdaughter Mon 20-May-13 17:43:22

Errr how do I say it?

{dim}blush

SirChenjin Mon 20-May-13 18:01:11

I'm reading it as A-Liah May?

LittleMissMedium Mon 20-May-13 18:07:40

It's not great. I don't love all these names that replace the 'y' with an 'i'. Or two names as a first name. Alaia May Humes is better than Alaia-Mai Humes, but I am not them and they are not me, so...

LittleMissMedium Mon 20-May-13 18:10:36

I think it's pronounced 'a-lay-ah'?

farmersdaughter Mon 20-May-13 18:14:02

Mmm not my cup of tea at all. But it could be a lot worse lets face it.

ChocsAwayInMyGob Mon 20-May-13 18:18:07

Sounds childish and made up, like the name a 6 year would dream up.

ThenWeTakeBerlin Mon 20-May-13 18:18:46

I like Alaia on its own, but names ending in -Mai have been done to death and will date horribly.

EarnestDullard Mon 20-May-13 18:21:46

I think it's a pretty name but I'm not keen on the spelling.

EarnestDullard Mon 20-May-13 18:22:27

Or the hyphenation, actually.

MadameJosephine Mon 20-May-13 19:00:38

Alaia is pretty on its own but they've spoilt it by tagging mai on the end. I've never really understood spelling may as mai, to me it looks like it should be pronounced 'my' as in mai-tai?

daisydoodoo Mon 20-May-13 19:02:35

Is it not ah lee uh ? Thats how I assumed it was pronounced.

PollyJane Mon 20-May-13 19:21:07

This is going to sound mean but to me it reminds me of when you are about 11 and you name your future children.... (mine were Chanteen-Mae and Dervlin-Jai)

...and then forget the growing up bit inbetween

(apologies to any parents of Chanteen and Dervlin)

smile

PollyPlummer Mon 20-May-13 19:22:43

Is it pronounce a lee ah ? I have heard that before.

PollyPlummer Mon 20-May-13 19:22:58

Ah I see x post with daisy

Jidget Mon 20-May-13 19:27:35

grin PollyJane

I read it as Ah-lie-ah My which doesn't sound good at all.

Pouncer1 Mon 20-May-13 19:40:33

Mai is welsh for May!

MadameJosephine Mon 20-May-13 19:45:48

Is it pouncer i didn't know that, is it pronounced as may? I'm sure there's lots of other welsh words that I can't pronounce too!
