How would you pronounce this name?


I am expecting my first in just under 2 months. If its a girl I have picked the name ‘Hannae’. The baby will be mixed and will ‘hopefully’ speak [name_m]French[/name_m], English and Norwegian. I am not sure how this spelling would be read out in English?

What about the alternative Hania/Haniya? What do you think of them and how would you pronounce them?

Thank you!!

My first instinct is to pronounce the name huh-nay or han-nay.

My first thought was to pronounce it like [name_f]Honey[/name_f].

I would pronounce it “hahn-nay”.

HAN-nay. Like [name_f]Hannah[/name_f] except rhyming with ‘day’.

I would probably prn it the same as @jadnf but with the emphasis on the final syllable.

I instantly pronounce it Han-nay (like [name_f]Hannah[/name_f] but with the “day” ending)

I read Hann-ay. Hann like [name_f]Hannah[/name_f] and Ay rhyming with [name_u]DAY[/name_u]

I would pronounce it huh-NAY or hah-NAY.

I pronounce it as hah-nay or huh-nay

Hun-nay is how I read it

I’d pronounce it HUH-nay, kind of like honey but emphasis on the first syllable and ending like day. (I have a Midwest US accent.)

I would pronounce it as HAN-nay, with the first syllable the same as the first syllable of [name_f]Hannah[/name_f].

Thank you for your answers! Seems like most people would pronounce it the same ‘Han-nay’. I think the actual pronunciation is meant to be ‘Han-air’ but the consulates have constraints on spellings you can use ([name_f]Hanae[/name_f], Hanaa or maybe [name_f]Hanah[/name_f]). My other option is a very similar form of the name: [name_f]Hania[/name_f] or Haniya. [name_m]How[/name_m] would you pronounce these two? They should be ‘Ha-nee-a’ but wondering if anyone would end up reading them ‘Han-eye-a’. Which spelling/name do you prefer?
Thank you for your help! [name_m]Don[/name_m]'t want to saddle poor girl with a name nobody knows how to read but its ok if some people need to be corrected since it is a foreign name.

I would pronounce [name_f]Hania[/name_f] as Ha-nee-a and Haniya as Han-eye-a.
I think with Hannae the pronunciation would have to be corrected often, but once it was corrected there shouldn’t be much issue.

huh-nay or han-ay
