how would you pronounce Danika?


we're thinking about naming our baby Danika, if it's a girl. i'm 21 weeks and we're hoping to find out the sex in a couple of weeks.

one person said she would pronounce it a different way, so i just wanted to make sure that most people would pronounce it the way we want so our kid wouldn't have to say no it's "_______" not "_________"

thanks! her nickname would be Dani

  • Dan-E-ka, I think it is a pretty name.
    I have to tell people who don't speak Spanish that My name is Ca-sand-dra, not Ca-sond-dra (that way sounds so snotty to me) It is not so bad.
