It is one syllable- The SR is like the SR in Sri Lanka.

Srey has a lot going on with three sounds in one syllable. Kinda like the word "screech."

I talked to my old roomie: she recommended Serey for an Americanization. It takes the SR and makes it into a full syllable. Serey is also an actual Cambodian name, meaning "beauty"

So, going to go with that, methinks! Although I also like the "Serae" spelling that was suggested, too. Srey is very feminine to me, but that may be because I know a woman with the name. Will have to think about whether "Serey" is masculine looking.

Thanks all, for your input! It has been really helpful.
