Just for fun as I'm never going to be naming another baby.

Some names I would avoid as I like them said one way but others say another way.

Aaron
Evelyn
Megan
Esme
Michelle
Clementine
Naomi
Rene

There are loads more, but can't think of any more at the moment.

Michelle with a Mi that sounds like the start of mitten or Michelle where the first sound sounds like Me?

And I'm pretty sure the standard pronunciation of Ciara is the same as Kiera.

Chiara is Italian and pronounced key-ara, but I don't know any Ciaras who use this pronunciation.

Does anyone actually say Mee-shell or was that just a once off to fit with the song?
