Ris/Rice is how my brain immediately interprets it. I know it’s “supposed” to be “Reese” but my brain does not read that immediately.

My immediate reaction was “Reese” because I knew I was looking for a name and that’s a name I’ve heard before. But if I hadn’t ever heard the name Reese before I would have assumed it was pronounced “Rice”

misswaiting:  I know it’s Reese, but I always pronounce it Reez in my head. I don’t know why. I feel like it should end with a z sound spelt like that.

“Reese”… I really like it!  It’s a very traditional name, but there are modern celebrities with it too! (Like the uber-hot Jonathan Rhys Meyers)

I had a friend from Austraia who had the same name spelled that way and when we first started talking I thought it was “rice” but figured out the correct way later on so now I know it’s “reese” but I can see how it will confuse others.
