How would you pronounce this?

We love the name Tea however hate the spelling (due to being the same the drink).  Would you pronounce Tea and Teya the same way?

TIA

When I first seen the name/heading of your post I pronounced Teya as in the alcoholic drink Tia Maria.

But it threw me a bit when I read Tea (as in a cup of tea) because then I had to think about it more ..ha!

Do you prefer Tee-a (alcohol) or Tee (pot of tea)?! original.gif Both are drinks so I don't know which one you mean now .. :confuse: haha!!

I like it though if it's pronounced Tee-a!!

Hi there,

I would be pronouncing this as Tay-a, which is the same as my DD although her name is spelt TAIA.

So to answer your question, no I don't believe that you would pronounce Tea the same as Teya.

Hope this helps

I've only heard of Tea Leone - pronounced Tay-a. She has an 'acute' over the a (I think) which might stop it looking like a cuppa!

I would pronounce Teya as Tee-ya.  I would pronounce Taya as Tay-ya and Taia as Ty-ya.

I think Taya is much better, otherwise you need to put the little apostrophe thing over the top of Tea.

i too read it as Tay-a. I love the name too annd was worried about pronunciation. I like it as Tea as in Tea Leone but it needs the acute. And as a teacher I would have to say that more likely than not this would be left off her name as so much labelling etc is done on computers these days and she would miss out. Just thoughts....

Love the name.  I think the spelling Teya or Taya is the way to go as you will have to correct people a lot less.

Thanks everyone - what a response!  original.gif

We want it to be pronounced Tay-a so I guess it looks like this is it.

We love the name just were unsure of how to spell it.

Flipflop - I am glad you replied as we were concerned about the acute being left off Tea for once bubs goes to scholl etc.

Thanks girls - now just need to come up with a boys name hmmmmm!!

What about spelling it  'Téja'

Still pronounced the same way, but very pretty at the same time.

Good luck!
