How would you pronounce the names Acacia & Tamia?

invicta Sun 16-Feb-14 18:49:16

A - case - sia

Tam - mia

Ah-CASE-ee-ah and I'd guess at Tam-EE-ah. That's how they pronounced Acacia on Bananaman anyway! (Showing my age)

a-CASHE-uh and Tam-ee-uh. But both would be guesses as I have never come across anybody with either name.

Uh-KAY-sha & TAM-ee-uh.

Seminyak Sun 16-Feb-14 19:15:05

a-CASE-ia and TAMM-ia

A-kaish-a and Ta-mee-ya

A-Kay-sha and Tammi-ah.

Im guessing that is incorrect?!

LynetteScavo Sun 16-Feb-14 19:55:41

A- Kay-sha

Tam- me-a

My mother says; A-kay-see-ah.

It really irritates me, but you'll probably all tell me I'm the one in the wrong. grin

Well the tree is Acaysha, isn't it?
And Tameea as in Narnia (Narneea)

www.macmillandictionary.com/pronunciation/british/acacia

and
www.forvo.com/word/tamia/ According to that site, 'tamia' means 'chipmunk'. And aren't ta'amia chickpea or bean patties, like felafel? link: hodmedods.co.uk/recipes/egyptian-falafels/

I'd assume Acacia is pronounced a-kay-see-a if they are British and a-kay-sha if they are American, emphasis on the kay in both cases.

I've never heard of Tamia, and wouldn't know how to pronounce it. I'd probably guess at ta-mee-a, emphasis on the mee.

Uh-KAY-shuh

TAM-ee-uh

Oriunda Mon 17-Feb-14 14:58:27

Ah-Kay-sha like the honey
Tarm-e-ah but never heard so no idea, that's how I'd pronounce because Tam-y-ah sounds wrong

Lutrine Mon 17-Feb-14 17:45:07

A-Kay-shuh and Tam-mee-uh
