Awwww! She said "clap clap clap"! Soooo cute!

That was so awesome! And I didn't realize that Coralie was pronounced to rhyme with "fly." I've always read it like Cora-LEE. Good to know! I like it even better now!

Awesome!

Thanks everyone.  She's a very communicative baby, she's had plenty of time to work on it, since she still can't crawl.  Heh.

Yeah, I realized after I named her that I should have spelled it Coralai..  Every, single person that's read it out loud has said it wrong.  It made sense to me at the time, Cora-Lie.  Ah well.  :)

Me too! I was so surprised when I heard you say it in the video, Abra. I was all, "Wait a minute....!!" But it does make sense... It's like Coraline without the N.

I also thought it was CoraLEE. Sorry!

I can't stop watching it! lol "How big are you?" Soooo big! lol

Perhaps I am illiterate, but I've always read it Coral-eye (kidding, Cora-lye. It's fun no matter how you spell it).

I've always liked the names Laralai and Coraline, but both are a tad popular for my tastes, so we smashed them together.  Really though, I can considered changed the spelling to Coralai.  Otherwise I think it's going to be a life-long battle of a mis-pronounced name.  My name is always butchered, nearly every time, so I know what it's like.

Abra, your name is A like the A in apple and bra with a soft E sound, right? Now I'm wondering if I say that wrong, too...

Lol, I pronounce Abra like abra cadabra. I am probably wrong.

For the record, Seraf rhymes with girraffe.

Me too.

Sara, I always read your name as Sera F. Like it was an initial. Lol.
post #954 of 1492

I LOVE how you pronounce Coralie's name! 

 

I had Seraf right in my head, but not sure about Abra.

 

My actual name is Dionne, but please call me Ash.  Haha.  Dionne is constantly butchered.  Its phonetically Dee-on.  But most people say Die-own.  I actually get Diane about half of the time.

post #955 of 1492

It's actually AY-bra if I remember correctly :-)

post #956 of 1492

Dude, really?  I had Coralie and Abra wrong?  I always pronounced it CoraLEE and A-bra.  For the record I love the spelling Coralai... is there like a grace period where it's easy to change a baby's name?  Would you change it?

post #957 of 1492
In Ohio you can change it during the first year.
post #958 of 1492

I always said Ah-bruh in my mind but I got Corelie right!

 

My name is ALWAYS butchered. It's Kali, pronounced KAH-lee. But I don't care and still named my kids weird names. ;)

post #959 of 1492

It's just like Abraham, only with no ham.  ;)

 

Yeah, I still totally love unusual names, even if they do get butchered.  I'm going to look into the name change thing, I just might.

I'm pleased I had Abra and Coralie right in my head :)
