The name Andres?
(it's pronounced Ahn-drace, it's a spanish name .)



This is my son to be's name and it won't be changed regardless of answers on here. Just curious. I have a son named Elias (ell-ee-ess) already and he often gets called ee-lie-uss. It's not a big deal to us.

On dray. But it could be said on dray Ess. But I think that's more of a foreign pronunciation.

Yeah we use the foreign pronunciation because he is Mexican and we speak Spanish at home primarilly...but it's not a big deal!

I think you say it even different than the two I put, right? I think any way is acceptable it just depends on the language you're using. So if you're saying it Spanish then it's all good :) I like the name.

I would pronounce it Ahn- Drays....not the ahn dray es, because there's no a before the s to warrant that extra syllable.



I think it's a lovely name.

Well, I'm able to speak a little Spanish so I'd pronounce it "ahn-drrress", but I have the ability to roll the R, lol...
