  • This is too long and sounds too different from how it spells. The teachers would hate you!

  • I thought of ashtray too. I am sorry, but it just sounds dumb.

  • It reminds me of Australia... even with your correct pronunciation, it sounds like Australia with an accent of some sort (German??)

    Which isn't necessarily a bad thing, I like it!
    Especially if you, the father, or the baby have any sort of connection to the land down unda'. (were they possibly conceived there, too cute!)

    But its up to you, because it wouldn't suit most people's taste....

  • Oh, if you want to conform a little bit, but keep your name... Try actually spelling it with a U!
    Ushtralia, or however... Might stop the ash tray and teacher comments

  • sounds like ashtray or australia the way i'm reading it and if you can't tell how to say it by how it's spelled you might want to rethink that.

  • Like an Australian ashtray? I bet those would be her taunting nicknames. Sorry, I don't think I would go with that one.
    Think twice about funky spellings. She will have to spell it out for everyone for the rest of her life.
