Then don't spell the names weird
I'm watching toddlers and tiaras and one little girls name is Alycesaundra pronounced "Ah-lis-andra" and when the speaker mispronounced her name the mom flipped

Can you imagine when that little girl goes to school, she is going to have to spell her name or pronounce her name over and over again.

For realz. It annoys me when people spell their kids name "cool" or "different" and it just looks like they guessed at the spelling. Names usually have meanings, based on origin, if you dont spell it that way, it doesnt mean anything. It's just a bunch of letters thrown together. If you decide to do this crazy spelling, you better stay calm at mispronounciations.

is Lyric bad?

The worse i've gotten is people thinking Lyric is a boys name not a girls.

The "alyce" part is the only part that's probably hard. I guess what really throws me off is how hard it is going to be for the girl later in life.

People are going to mispronounce names no matter the spelling. My name is Janna and idiots all the time get it wrong. My youngest dd is named Lexi and I have had people call her Lexus. -.-
