Well, we had 4 names to choose from... now we narrowed it down to 2:

Carys Lauren Kelly
Caelyn Lauren Kelly

*My DH and I are both being stubborn. He loves Caelyn, and while I like both, I prefer Carys. If you've been reading my other posts, I just think Caelyn Lauren Kelly doesn't flow very well.

Anyways, this time my DH and I are not sure as to how you would pronounce Carys. I say it would be like: Care-is... and ofcourse now he says it would be more like Car-is. Does anyone know? I think he's just trying to make me go with Caelyn since I like it pronounced my way.

That's what I was noticing too. I thought he was just being a sneaky little stinker... trying to get his way. Thanks!

I love Carys, and it is definitely pronounced Kare-iss. (I posted to you before that this was my vote in our May DDC!) Your DH sounds like mine! LOL! Even though we agreed that we are naming the baby Delia, he still keeps pushing for the name that was his first choice. I think he thinks he'll wear me down eventually, but he is WRONG!
