<span style="font-size:large;"><b>Zellarhea</b></span><br><br>
I am wondering what the meaning is and exactly how to pronounce it. I love the way it looks, but am thinking that it's pronounced like "Celery".<br><br>
Anyone know for sure?<br><br>
Thanks!

I don't know about the pronunciation, but I'd be careful ... it looks a lot like "diarrhea," and that could be a problem.

I was going to say the same thing as Beverly. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/blush.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="blush"><br>
How about "Zellaria"?<br><br>
The closest I could find in my baby name books was Zella, a variant of Zelia, which is from the Latin zelus, meaning "zealous."<br><br>
In another book, Zella is Bobangi, from Africa: "lacking nothing" or "one who knows the path."

I would agree that Zellaria looks nicer, and perhaps it should be pronounced "Zell-AH-ria" to avoid teasing.
