Re: How would you pronounce this name?

What about Maurianna?

I'm going for M-are-ee-ah-na but I'm not sure how I should spell it.

I would pronounce it like a combo of Mary Anna (all one word)

i'd say that "more-ee-ah-na"

not sure what exactly you are going for... (the m-are part confuses me).

That would read, to me, as sounding like it started with maureen so mah-ee-anna which just sounds goofy.

Since there are a few different ways of pronouncing this, I say if you love the name pick the pronunciation you love and just go with it... sure there will be people who say it incorrectly, but that always seems to be the case!

I said 'mare-e-ah-nuh' from the first spelling you posted. Names and spelling are always going to news mispronounced these days, so there is probably not a perfect spelling.
