I think this is beautiful pn Es-may but ordinary pn Es-me. Would I be fighting a losing battle against a tide of Es-me if we used this?

I would pronounce it es may smile

blibblibs Thu 09-May-13 17:46:11

I've always thought it was Es-may.

I'm in the es-me camp, sorry

Es me for me too I'm afraid.

Es-me. I think Es-may sounds a bit Hyacinth Bucket.

I'm Es-Me have to put an accent line over the last E if you want it pronounced Es-May...I think that's right,I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong!

Lovely when pronounced like this

hellymelly Thu 09-May-13 18:02:02

I've never heard es-me. Only Es-may. It has an accent on the last e for that reason doesn't it?

mumnosbest Thu 09-May-13 18:15:10

Es may. Never heard it pn ad es me. I think if you correct people enough they learn. DS has a name which you can pn 2 ways and its been fine. Now he corrects people himself

Chavvytastic Thu 09-May-13 18:19:30

Esme to me.

Ez mee as far I know and I love it.I think it would need an accent on the final 'e' to be Esmay.

My dd is es-may, though she calls herself 'me'. She is 2.6
