It’s pretty, but with all due respect, I fear it will be difficult for many people to say, at least the rist time, and therefore something of a social hindrance (though admittedly, perhaps only a small one). I don’t think you or she want people having to click on a link to learn how to pronounce her name.
When my daughter was in preschool, she had a classmate named Maeve whose mother was from England. Maeve was a great friend for my daughter, until she went back to England. I wonder how she’s doing now? She was a cute little girl. She’d probably be a heartbreaker by now.
Not sure if that’s the kind of thoughts you wanted, but those are the thoughts I had.
Right now I do not know how to pronounce it. I know you included a video link but honestly if there has to be a video explaining how to pronounce a name please don’t name your child it unless you realize that it’s only going to be a hassle in school and the child will probably detest it. My name is not even hard to pronounce and people still don’t say it correctly. I hated my name and was irritated with my parents for naming me it for the first 15 years of my life. And I was a very happy child! Now I love it, but I’m just sayin. It’ll be a pain. Middle name, sure because those hardly have any use anyhow.
Also if I had to guess at how to pronounce it (imagine me as her 1st grade teacher) I’d probably pronounce it like the color MAUVE….can you imagine the children cackling?
@Leanne1986 Six years old. She comes from an animal hoarding situation. The owner had many dogs, cats and other things. There were three Chihuahuas there. Of the three, she is the quietest, most well behaved. She loved to be held. The girls at the rescue describe her as being really sweet and lovable. Good temperament. :)
