How would you pronounce this child's name:


"Le-a"

Leah?No
Lee - A? Nope
Lay - a? No
Lei? Guess Again.

This child attends a school in Detroit, MI . Her mother is irate because everyone is getting her name wrong. It's pronounced "Ledasha".
When the Mother was asked about the pronunciation of the name, she said, "the dash don't be silent."

So, if you see something come across your desk like this, please remember to pronounce the dash.
If they axe you why, tell them the dash don't be silent.

Stupid people. If didnt want people to mispronounce it than should have spelled it exactly like you wanted it.

I see it everyday here in Shreveport LA..Indeed VERY SAD.. This is the only down fall of living here...
Yea, I tend to stay out of S'port. If anything we just go over to the boardwalk shopping. Most of that place is g-h-e-t-t-o these days. I've heard about stupid people giving their kids names like that...and I'm sure they'll say it's racist when nobody can figure out wtf the name is.
