Iris - but I would wonder about why you had chosen such an odd spelling.

Iris, but unusual spelling.

eye-ris (UK) or ah-reese - common Latin American name..

I would not coo over its beauty, put it that way.

I read it as ih-REECE (short I sound as in "in")

Coughle Sat 19-Jul-14 10:06:51

But on a second look... Ear-ick-ay?

EauRouge Sat 19-Jul-14 10:11:21

Eye-reece? Eye-rice? Eye-reechee?

Go on, OP, tell us you're considering it as a name for your DC grin

OutragedFromLeeds Sat 19-Jul-14 12:01:12

I-Reece (I as in ink)

Appletini Sat 19-Jul-14 12:07:29

That's not a name.

Eye rice

That's about what it deserves.

Presume it's made up to be different?
Eye-rice is what it looks like.

MultipleMama Sat 19-Jul-14 15:53:53


That's what google tries to convert it to...

ShadowFall Sat 19-Jul-14 16:43:21

My first guess was Er-see.

Followed by Eye-rye-see.

HillyHolbrook Sat 19-Jul-14 19:55:11

Eye Reece.

A bit like Idris pronounced the middle eastern way of Id Reece, but without the D.

Gemerama Sat 19-Jul-14 20:00:18

Ir-reece. Did you make it up?

Squtternutbaush Sat 19-Jul-14 20:01:43

Is it a bizarre spelling of Eric?

I-Ryc(silent E)

Whatever it is I would assume the parents were rat-arsed at the registration grin

I would guess at Ih-rees, but would probably ask how to pronounce it.
