What do you think of this name I saw yesterday

Deyanee. I saw it on a back pack tag at my DS school on Friday so I am hoping it was a last name...?... because the way I read it is Dee-yah-nay.... or DNA. lol. I just shook my head.

  • I'd pronounce it deeYAYnee like Delaney. It's OK, not my favorite.

  • We considered the name Delaney (if i was going to have a girl,I wasn't) DELL-AH- KNEE
    That one,I'd read as DAY-YAH-KNEE

  • I was in the store the other day and heard this mom call out "Sky come here" thought she had to be talking to a girl. Nope, she named her son that.. Poor boy! Sky sound like a girl name to me.

  • I vote for DNA.
    Someone probably told this poor woman she had to get the DNA test, and she thought it was her baby's name.

  • My first thought went to DNA. lol.

    Answer by poptart0325 at 4:41 PM on Sep. 15, 2013

  • My first thought was DNA as well.

    My son's name is Torren. It's more unusual in the US(though not as unusual as you would think) but it is fairly common in Ireland. It's a shorter version of Torrence.

    I wanted something more unique for my son but not so unique that is would be weird at school and I was very mindful of other people having to pronounce his name so spelling something like it should sound was big with me as well as the likelihood of teasing lol.
