I think the pronunciation is pretty but I think it will cause a lot of problems for her growing up. Most people will have no clue how to pronounce her name. However, that can happen with easy names too. My name should be easy for people to pronounce yet people mess it up all the time.

This isn't the kind of name you change the spelling on. It's Maori in origin. That's how it's spelled.

I think it's really different and when pronounced properly, it's very pretty. But she will, for the rest of her life be correcting people on the pronounciation.

I think its really pretty. I like names that have meaning. Do you live in NZ? If so I don't think people would really think twice about the spelling once they learned how to pronounce it.

It may be difficult if you live elsewhere, though.

As long as it doesn't bother you to have people mispronounce it all the time, I think the name itself is really pretty.

Actually I live In Australia, I know what you mean about the mispronounciation my mother gets nah-gar-ee all the time from telemarketers and such. I would only use it as a middle name but it's hard to find anything that goes with it or sounds similar

Just going with names from you profile, I think Mattea Ngaire or Elora Ngaire might work. I don't think the spelling/pronunciation issues are a big deal for a middle name, since its not like other people would be using the name on a daily basis.

I really like it, and I certainly wouldn't change the spelling, it's a huge part of what makes the name unique.
I love that it's of Maori origin... Beautiful name.

I think it'd be a cute middle name and if I'm pronouncing it right, I think it'd go well with pretty much any 3 syllable first name that doesn't end in an EE sound. Good luck!
