Silly Sunday: Le-a

How would you pronounce this child's name?


 
She spells her name "Le-a"
 
 
So how would YOU pronounce her name?
 

 
 
Leah?  ....................NO.

Lee- A?  ................. NOPE.

Lay -a?  .............. NOT A CHANCE.

Lei?..........NICE TRY, BUT GUESS AGAIN!
 
 
This child attends a school in Livingston Parish, LA. Her mother is irate because everyone is getting her child's name wrong.
She says it's pronounced "Ledasha."
 
When the Mother was asked how in the world she figured it should be pronounced that way, she said, "cause the dash don't be silent!"
 

So, if you see a name come across your desk like this, please remember to pronounce the dash.
 
And if anyone ask you why, tell them "It's 'cause the dash don't be silent!"
