I am not sure how “Aye-dre-ah” is actually said phonetically. I would pronounce the first syllable of that spelled out version like the word “aye,” (which sounds like saying the letter I) but I would say the first syllable of Adria like the letter A, then dree, then “uh.”

Yes, I can see what you’re saying. A-dree-uh is what I am going for and meant “aye” to sound like “A”

Cool. Well, I think it’s a very pretty name that will only very rarely get mangled. (And these days, that’s a pretty good feat!)

oops I was confused too and voted wrong. Aye = I in my head. Ay-dree-uh is how I would pronounce the name.

Maybe this is regional but I immediately thought – uh-dree-uh. But it makes sense for it to be pronounced like Adrian without the “n.” If you want to make that more clear maybe alter the spelling to Aydria.

I’d pronounce it as Aid’ ree ah.

It’s a very pretty name! I pronounced it like Andrea without the -nd. 🙂
