Pronunciation of Desiree in Columbus, Ohio, United States of America

Dez-uh-RAY
This is the right way to pronounce it. My name is Desiree.


   Slow



Type of Name:

First Name

Origin:

French

Gender:

Female

Alternate Spelling(s):

Desirée

Meaning:

To Desire

Additional Information:

This name is properly spelled with an accent mark over the second "e", but in English, seeing as we don't use accent marks, it has been dropped. The letter "é" is pronounced like a long "a" in French. That gives it the "ray" sound. I have done a lot of research into the origin of my name (because I'm a nerd :) and I take French, so I know a lot about this. It is possible that someone with the name Desiree could use the "ree" sound at the end. It's really best to ask them. The way the name was originally meant to sound was with a "ray", however.

Pronunciation of Desiree

You pronounced it as 'd eh z - uh - r ai ' The 'ai' as in 'pain'. That is wrong. It should be just 'ee' as in 'sheep'. Like ''d eh z - uh - r ee ' I actually asked one Desiree the pronunciation of her name. :)
