One thing I wish I had considered when naming my first kid was how their name would be butchered by my in-laws’ flat, American Midwestern accent. I can’t tell you how much the accent grates on the ear. I hate the way they pronounce the letter “a.” Sounds like a dying sheep. Lol!! I’m sorry if I offend anyone with that accent. It’s just NOT for me. In that light:
What are your favorite baby names (for either sex) that do NOT contain the letter “a” at all?
Do your in-laws pronounce your kids’ names differently than you do?
