So, we've made a short list of names for our daughter due at the end of the year. Top of the list is the name Ariya (pronounced A-ree-ah) however I prefer the spelling of Aria (pronounced Arr-ree-ah) - might be easier to youtube these! Concerned if we go with the pronunciation of Ariya but spelling of Aria, we will constantly correcting people. Thoughts?
If you choose the spelling of one name with the pronounciation of another, then yes, you will constantly be correcting people...telling them they are wrong when they are saying it right! And you may only have to do it for a few years, the poor child will have be doing it their entire lives. Pronounce the name how it is meant to be pronounced,
