Pronunciation of Vale

I adore the name [name_u]Vale[/name_u]! I pronounce it like [name_m]Vail[/name_m] (as in [name_u]Colorado[/name_u]). [name_m]How[/name_m] would you pronounce it?

I’d pronounce is the exact same way!

The same way :slight_smile:

Same. I don’t think anyone could screw it up!

Veil like a wedding veil.

The same way as you. I don’t think you’d have any issues: maybe a couple of people looking at it and thinking it was a creative spelling of “valley” (since “vale” isn’t a really common word like “veil” is), but that’s about it.

[name_u]Vale[/name_u], [name_f]IMO[/name_f], could either be the wedding Veil, or [name_u]Vale[/name_u], like my friend. It’s pronounced Var-[name_u]Lee[/name_u], as in [name_u]Harley[/name_u] with a V at the start.

Exactly the same way, just like a wedding veil. However, I did hum and haw about it being var-lee, but I am not familiar with the name.
