Sweet or too much onion? :onion: :wink:

I say it vye-dale-yuh.

It’s a nice name, but I definitely wouldn’t think to pronounce it vye-dale-yuh at first! [name_f]My[/name_f] initial thought was vee-DAH-lee-ah or vee-DAH-lya

There are a few pronunciations Im sure but its a place in [name_f]Georgia[/name_f] famous for onions. Thats where Im getting my pronunciation, from the onion :slightly_smiling_face:

It’s a cool name, but on instinct, I would pronounce it vee-DAH-lee-ah as well.

I’d instinctively pronounce it Vih-dah-lee-uh but vye-dale-yuh is pretty and distinctive too

[name_f]Pretty[/name_f] much exactly this.

That said, the name is very “onion” to me and I personally wouldn’t use it for that reason, but depending on where you are I don’t think it’s such a commonly known association that it’s unusable? It’s otherwise a very nice sounding name.

I say it vi-dal(like [name_m]Al[/name_m] with a D)-yuh, and that’s how I (and everyone I know) pronounce the onion type as well. I think it does have a nice sound, but it’s way too closely associated with onions to be useable.

I love the sound of this but I do think in real life it’s too onion-y. I think I’ve asked about it on the Quick [name_u]Poll[/name_u] Thread before because I really do like it! I pronounce it vye-dale-yuh like you do, or vih-dale-yuh if I’m talking fast.
