How do you say this name: Mahalie?
2006-11-18 10:06:26 UTC
I plan on naming my child this, if I have a girl: Mahalie. So many people say it in different ways. What is the correct way. I think it's said like this: MUH-HAY-LEE. Am I right.

Also, what do you all think of Pio for a boy. It's said (PEA-O)

Muh-hay-lee is correct.

Pio, while cute, will get your kid all sorts of horrible, horrible nicknames about urine. My mom always said she should have named me PIA, for pain in a... well. You can imagine, I'm sure.

Mahalie is really cute and original. I like it a lot pronounced that way. I don't care for Pio for a boy, but I dont' know where you live, it may be nice for there.

I really don't care for the name Mahalie. My guess is Mahalie would be Ma-Hay-Lee.

I hate the name Pio.

It doesnt matter how other people think it's pronounced. It's how you pronounce it when she is borm. When I first saw it I said MAH-HAH-LEE, but after thinking about it as a girls namee. MAHA-HAY-LEE sounded better. Good luck w/ yer baby. By the way Pio is not a name I've ever heard/ Just think of how he'll be made fun of w/ any name you pick. As long as your last name isnt Potty, then it's as fine name...

Mahalie is pretty. Pio, I dont know. I dont really like it.

Yes you are right. MUH- HAY-LEE. And pio, you know he will eat peas when he grows up and actually likes them.

I think you are right about how to pronounce Mahalie.

i don't really like Pio for a boy's name, then again, it's not my decision, it's yours.

Well, it's your baby, so it's your choice.

I thought it was Ma- har-lee before I saw your pronounciation though, but I have to say I don't like Pio...
