1.How would you pronounce it upon first seeing it?

2.Do you think it would me misspronounced a lot? (it is suppose to be said like Reese)

3.WDYT of it in general?

4.WDYT of the combo Rhys Dominic?

I LOVE this name and I would probably use it despite the pronunciation issues, I just wanted a general opinion on it.

Thanks ladies!

I love this name too! It's on my short list for boys. Spelled Rhys. I think it looks much classier than the "Reese" spelling.
Question 1. I'd pronounce it the right way and for people who don't, they can surely learn in 5 seconds.
2. No I don't think it would be mispronounced a lot. Most people are literate this days and can make educated guesses.
3. I LOVE the name Rhys.
4. I love your combo!

I automatically prn it like Reese. I love this name I don't think it will get mis-prn. all the time. Rhys Dominic is cute, but Dominic is not my style.

It's a great name and I don't think you'd have any pronuciation issues. I'd use it and also Dominic if they hadn't already been taken by my gaggle of in-laws and cousins! Nice.

1.How would you pronounce it upon first seeing it? I would pronounce it Reese...but before coming to this board I never would've thought it was pronounced like that.

2.Do you think it would me misspronounced a lot? Yes I do...most people will have no idea how to say it.

3.WDYT of it in general? I LOVE the name Rhys...but spelled Reese and only for a girl (obviously)

4.WDYT of the combo Rhys Dominic? Again I don't like Rhys for a boy...especially for a first name.[/b]

Before coming here, I would have pronounced Rhys like RISS.
Why not just use Reese so people will say it right?
I think it flows well with Dominic!

I say Reese . I knew the pronunciation a long time ago , So it wouldn't be confusing for me at all .

It might be mispronounced a lot , but IMO it's a lot better than Reese/Reece !

I really like it .

Rhys Dominic flows alright .
