Came across this name the other day and can't imagine how it is spoken. Tylaaah? Tar-y-lar?

Taylor? Poor kid

Nagini Sun 31-Jul-11 13:02:36

taylor probably. It's fucking awful, in case you weren't sure grin

I would have thought Taylor...

feckwit Sun 31-Jul-11 13:49:24

taylor i would imagine.

Taylor, if Bianca from Eastenders is shouting for her across the square.

I think its pronounced "my parents are knobs". Not sure though.

i thought say it how it spelt so Tay -lah

which is horrible

or go with the crowd and Taylor

I am tempted to say that it is pronounced CHAV - but I am nice, so I won't. Agree with Nagini that it is indeed freaking awful though.

Soddit - Remus said it first. Damn you and all your kind! <waves fist impotently>

Didn't take long before a chav post did it

<rolls eyes>

TidyDancer Sun 31-Jul-11 14:24:42

Chav is entirely appropriate. That is a fucking awful name.

I would've said it's pronounced <boak> tbh.

I have just spat coffee at that name. OP, do you actually know these people? Or is it just a random name you saw written somewhere?

I imagine it's pronounced in a loud screechy voice but slightly muffled due to fag hanging out of mouth.

ShowOfHands Sun 31-Jul-11 17:17:21

Best to ask. A friend had a Mylea a while ago and I hoped for the best and went for 'Miley'. Nope.

alowVera Sun 31-Jul-11 17:18:55

But doesn't the 2nd vowel change the sound of the 1st so maybe it is Ta-la?

Nagini Sun 31-Jul-11 17:20:01

how does one pronounce mylea then show?

ShowOfHands Sun 31-Jul-11 17:26:25

Oh I still don't get it tbh.

The lea bit is 'leah' and the 'my' is something like mi (short sound). I call her baby girl most of the time.

Don't think so Nagini, that was a massacre in Vietnam
