    My grandmother's name is Raymonde. I'd like to put (part of) her name as my daughter's middle name. I was thinking we'd go with something like:
    Everlee Raya Marie
    I would like it to be pronounced Ray-ya, but I'm not sure if people would say it like that. What do you think? Any other ways of putting my grandma's name in there?

    I would pronounced it Ray-uh too. If you were concerned you could have Rae as an alternative?

    I'd say it exactly how its spelt, Ray-a. I guess it depends on accents?
    Good luck :flower:
