So Linnea is nice but in spanish its pronounced LEE-nay-uh, which is where the problem lies so it is not on the table. Most of you guys dont like the first one, I get that. The last one at least half or more want to pronounce that la-NEE-uh, I dont like that. The middle one most of you are pronouncing it correctly as La-NAY-uh.
So at the moment Lanaea with one or two n's seems to be the one that looks the best and is pronounced the best. I welcome more pronounciations on the originals or Lannaea with two n's.
I really do appreciate the feedback even if we disagree on the names we like.
ok one for Lannaea
You guys have been a big help, so first of all thank you so much.
We talked about the name, the tradtional one Linnea. We are considering maybe Lannea now because of all the suggestions, this way it is closer to the original spelling but more with the a sound in the beginning.
Lannea or Lannaea
****** please give me your pronunciations for these ones ******
Thank you for the reply. Linnea or Linnaea are ones that we are considering, the Lynn sound was not what we were looking for, but because it is close and the spelling I think is a bit more recognizable we may have to go with that.
It does looks like both of you are at least pronouncing Lanaea the way we wanted. We are welcome to more suggested spellings or pronounciations, so thank you.
It would seem that with all the different spellings trying to get the luh-NAY-ya sound, each one still has multiple ways of saying them. Linnea was rejected because the lynn sound was not what we were going for. Even with that spelling i have seen both lin-NEE-ah and lin-NAY-ah from people.
I love the way the name sounds, luh-NAY-ya that is, but it seems that I can't win with an easily recognizable spelling. Maybe I should change this posting to be, "how to spell the name that sounds like luh-NAY-ya".
Unless I can find a better spelling, I'm getting that if we like that name, my daughter will have to deal with people calling her La-NEE-ah or La-NYE-ah for the rest of her life.
Lanaya was the one that we originally went with, unfortunatly most people pronounce it like La•Nye•ah which we do not like. luh-NAY-ya was what we were going for.
