As a result of the exposure of diverse names, many people encounter trouble pronouncing them. Not everyone is a linguist, and what may seem to parents is a simple name, might be one that’s difficult to remember for others.

Our advice: If you’re not sure whether a name is easy to pronounce, draw up a list of names, e-mail or read it to your family or friends. Then ask them if they have any trouble with the pronunciation and spelling. Since there will be several names on the list, you won’t give away the name you’re thinking of.
