wow. this is sad.

How would you pronounce this student’s name?


Leah? NO
Lee – A?  NOPE
Lay – a?  NO WAY
Lei?  Guess Again.

It’s pronounced “Ledasha.”  Oh, yes, you read it right.  This child attends a school in Livingston Parish, LA. Her mother is irate because everyone is getting her name wrong. 

When the mother was asked about the pronunciation of the name, she said, 

“The dash don’t be silent.”

When I was in Arizona I went to a ranch called V-V, and it was pronounced "vee bar vee"
BTW, did you get my email? ;)
