How would you pronounce it? Ca-bree-a or Cab-ri-ah? It 's Spanish, quite like it if Ca-bree-a

Ca bri ah?

Like Mariah as in Carey.

Of course. God I'm useless pronouncing names, saw Mariah Carey near the meaning and wondered why the hell she was there!

How about spelling it Kabrea?

Not sure if i just made up a name there grin

At first glance I'd think Cab-RYE-ah. However if I was told it's Spanish, the 'i' sound would be EE, but I'd need to see a more typical Spanish spelling to know exactly how it's said.

The 'h' on the end doesn't normally happen in Spanish, and if the emphasis is on the 'i' it would require an accent, otherwise it would be CAB-ree-a.

Cabría would be pronounced cab-ree-a.

Spanish pronunciation would be cab-REE-a.
You know it means "hoist" in Spanish, right?
