I think 99% of people pronounce it wrong the first time. That could be really frustrating for you and the child.

Outside of a Matthias I met in Austria, I have never heard it pronounced with a hard T sound. I've always heard the first syllable pronounced more like Matthew, then a long I sound, then us.

Like Mommagain said, that's how those spellings would make me pronounce the name. I think it's the "h" in there.

I love the name, but you and Mathias might have a lifetime of correcting...

Thanks SavaAngel for my wonderful signature!
