How would you pronounce this name?

Braya. When you see it, how do you think it's pronounced? Do you like it? Why or why not?

Re: How would you pronounce this name?

Bra-Ah is how i'd pronounce it....I'd assume it's a girls name, nickname actually for maybe brayanna or something of the like. Don't like it for us, but i dont' neccessarily think it's a bad name.

I would ask the parent. I'd assume the meant it to be pronounced as BRAY-uh, but I would assume the correct pronunciation would rhyme with Maya, so BRY-uh.

Bray-yuh. I'm luke warm to it, I suppose. I knew a guy named Bray so it sounds to me like trying to make a girl name out of a boys. BUT- that's just me!
