Just that really. How would you pronounce it?

EmpressOfTheSevenOceans Tue 16-Aug-16 12:25:28

To rhyme with story.

Doinmummy Tue 16-Aug-16 12:25:33

Or ree . It's pretty .

cbigs Tue 16-Aug-16 12:26:34

Id pronounce it like ow-ree which is also pretty. ( but haven't seen the name before)

timelytess Tue 16-Aug-16 12:26:57

Or rhymes with tor, for etc
ri as in rip.

OohMavis Tue 16-Aug-16 12:28:13


Perhaps Ow-ri?

augustusdecimus Tue 16-Aug-16 12:28:49

Rhymes with story.

aw ree /or ree

Does it have a meaning?

ItchyFoot Tue 16-Aug-16 12:41:19

It's from a book. I can't decide between Or-ree or Ow-ree

EmpressOfTheSevenOceans Tue 16-Aug-16 12:51:43

Is it male or female?

JC23 Tue 16-Aug-16 12:53:01

I know the book grin

JC23 Tue 16-Aug-16 12:53:56

No more like eye-err-ee

ItchyFoot Tue 16-Aug-16 12:54:38

Female. Hadn't considered that JC

JC23 Tue 16-Aug-16 12:54:44

That's how I remember the pronunciation from the audiobook

LottieDoubtie Tue 16-Aug-16 12:55:24

I teach one pronounced "Ow-Ree' but that may not be definitive!

TheLongRains Tue 16-Aug-16 12:55:42

Immediately thought "ow-ree" (like Audi), but on thinking about it, I'd probably go with "or-ree"

Loyly Tue 16-Aug-16 12:57:40

I only know it as a Finnish name (so it depends on the setting) and it would be pronounced 'Ow-ri' in Finnish.

devilinmyshoes Tue 16-Aug-16 13:02:25

ISN'T it short for Auriella (ow ree ella)?

devilinmyshoes Tue 16-Aug-16 13:08:55

Maybe I'm thinking of Aurelia Or Ray Lee Uh

Iliveinalighthousewiththeghost Tue 16-Aug-16 13:51:19

Is that that right

Curlgurl Tue 16-Aug-16 13:56:31

Ow-ree as in the Toyota Auris without the s

A bit like Tori except without the T?
It looks lovely!

Which book? It's ringing a bell, sure I've read it. Lovely name.
