How do you pronounce Anaiah's name?


In my head I've always said "Uh-nigh-uh" but tonight John said no, it looks like "Uh-nay-uh" or "An-nay-uh" to him. So who's right? Or are we both wrong?

I've always said it the same way as you, "Uh-nigh-uh". Now I am curious if I have been wrong all along too

You ladies have it right! It's pronounced "Uh-nigh-uh". The ending sounds similar to the more common name Mariah. It probably would have been easier on people if we had spelled it Anaya but I didn't want even more confusion with the very common (and also my neice's) name Ananya, which is pronouced Un-nun- yah"

Sorry if I was confusing! LOL

I was saying it like A nigh a, its a common surname here, especially among gypsies (who originally came from India).

Are you ready for your travels?? Does Anaiah have a US passport?

I choose the name and spelling from the Hebrew name Anaiah because the meaning is special to me. After being told I'd never have kids, and a long and painful battle with infertility we had her. She was my answer to prayer. Her name means "Yahweh(God) answers!"

It's also used in southern India where it means something like the light that never dims.

I'm starting to get ready for our trip. Anaiah is an American like I am, we both also have "Person of Indian Origin" cards that allow us to stay in India without a visa. Eventually she'll get an "Overseas citizen of India" card that will let her work here etc.. (only she'll never be allowed to vote here or hold gov. office etc..) and has lifetime validity. It does make traveling easier that we both hold the same passeports.

I am so NOT looking forward to the flights!

Well there are different style of traditional Indian clothing for men & women and they have different names in different parts of the country.

In the north -
The long tunic style top is called a
Kurta-Pajama for men and (I think actually we might have stolen the word Pajamas from Hindi)
Salwar-Kameez on women and as a total package these are also referred to as suits. Salwar/Pajama refer to the pants and Kurta/Kameez refer to the tunic.

If what the men are wearing is more like a boxy long jacket, those are called a Sherwani and are worn for special occasions.

However there are different styles of pants for women like a patiala which has lots of pleats or a churidar with is tight and super long so that it gathers at the ankles. There are also different styles of 'kameez', they come out with variations all the time but all still basically long tunics.

If the tunic is short(er) and worn on it's own say over a pair of jeans it's called a Kurti.

The scarf that is women wear with any salwar/kameez is called a dupata or a "chuni" in the vernacular.

There are also Sarees and Lenghas.. but those are another story..

So it's ok to call them pajamas and they certainly are comfy like pajama! Thanks for the reminder too, I was wanting to buy a new 'suit' for Anaiah and had forgotten!
