Milis? Pronounced Mi-lis?

I was thinking of playing around with some names. I love [name]Milo[/name] so I just thought, “Hey, why not Milis.”
I don’t want people thinking it’s [name]Mil[/name]-is.
It would be Mi-lis.
Milis [name]James[/name]
We’d call him [name]Milo[/name] for short. Think he’d get made fun of at school? I’d hate to do that to the kid.

I love [name]Milo[/name]. I think Milis looked too much like [name]Mills[/name]. It threw me off for a second.

Unfortunately, I don’t think anyone will pronounce it the way you want. I think that you should go with [name]Milo[/name].

I think if you are going to call him [name]Milo[/name] anyway go with that for his name. I agree that I don’t think anyone would say it the way you want to. Best of luck with whatever you decide

Mostly everyone would pronounce it Mill-is, not My-lis. I think you should just name him [name]Milo[/name]! It’s handsome and ages well. [name]Milo[/name] [name]James[/name] is a great name.

I would definitely spell it Mylis instead to avoid confusion. However, while I think the name is a cute idea, [name]Milo[/name] seems/looks much more masculine and grounded to me, but I love the names [name]Milo[/name] & [name]Miles[/name], etc…
