how would you pronounce Baer?

Would you say it like “bear” or like “bay-er”? Thinking of it as a middle name, so it wouldn’t get seen that much. I would say it “bay-er”

More like ‘bayr’ I think.

Yup, the bay sound, but one-syllable - bayr

This is my friend’s surname and they pronounce it as “bayr.”

I’m with the other posters, I would say “bayr” or “bay-er.” I think the only reason someone might pronounce it as “bear” would be if they looked it at really quickly and just assumed it was bear, seeing as [name_m]Baer[/name_m] isn’t that common of a name.

[name_u]Bay[/name_u] er like the aspirin.

Bayr is how I would say it as well.

The same as bear, which sounds like “bay-er” when you say it in a Southern accent.

I thought of the aspirin too :smiley:

I would say it like the animal bear, with one syllable.

I would probably pronounce it “bayr” as well

I’d say [name_u]Bay[/name_u]-er. I really like it. Hmm… Might be a new crush. :confused:

[name_m]Bear[/name_m]. But [name_m]Bear[/name_m] for me sounds a lot like [name_u]Bay[/name_u]-er.

This is a family name of mine, it’s pronounced as bear.
