My name Is Aaliyah its a nice name too have better then what my Mom was Gonna name me A lot of people pronounce it wrong but most of the time its right and I prefer to be called Lili or Liya ...♥♥❇

10/12/2022 6:41:08 PM

the correct way to pronounce it is: /hee-men'-ah/ In Spanish, X has 3 different sounds: /h/, /sh/ and /ks/. In this case, it takes the pronunciation of /h/. Of course... if you are a Spanish speaking person, this phonetics will not sound exactly right, but for English speakers, this is the closest we can get. It is a beautiful name and It's nice to make our best effor to pronounce it properly. By the way, I'll name my baby girl: XIMENA

My name is Aaliyah. All my life I have lived with mispronounciation after mispronounciation. I hate it. From ?a-liar? to ?ay-lee? to ?ar-liar? to even ?a-layer?. And not to mention the'spelling!! I have never met anyone who hasn't asked me to spell out my name as they write it. Teache's just give up and spell whatever. Besides, making a four year old suffer through writing out A-a-l-i-y-a-h is just cruel. i've gone by Leah for twelve years because I refuse to have someone say ?a-liar? as they read my name tag and have all my colleagues laugh.

The correct pronunciation of the name Caleigh is KAY-LEE. Like a previous poster'said, It's derived from the Gaelic word Ceilidh. I hate that people can't say it correctly, but I knew that would possibly be the case before naming my daughter. I hope she doesn't mind too much!

If you were to sass the teacher would you care? Not Aaliyah she is too PERFECT! And she has enough money to buy the whole ministry so why is she'stalling?
