A kid named "Le-a"... How do you pronounce that?

Okay - I was at a thing last night and a co-worker told this story - second hand from his daughter who works in a nearby public school.

On the first day of school a new child named Le-a started in their school and they were trying to figure out how to pronounce her name... 'lee-ah' 'lee-ay' etc...

So they call the child's mom who told them (this is his quote of her quote of what the mom said)

"It's 'lee-dash-a.' The dash don't be silent."

That is insane. I love crazy name stories. You know most of mine, though - having been at the same High School as I.

I still love Candy Land, and Dusty Farmer, and Tinker Bell.

And do NOT get me started on what Mr. Boy named his son... Jeez!!

That just totally cracked me up! Haha. My first name has a "-" in it also, maybe mine shouldn't be silent either!

I don't know if it's funny that they had to call her mom, at what her mom named her or the fact that her mom said "the dash "don't" be silent.
