Ouch OP! Guess your parents wouldn't think it would bother you whenever you hear someone go "Hey how's Yarenis?" Change your name if you want to!
No she wouldn't. Seriously guys if you're gonna lie about knowing people with weird names, at least choose something original and not old jokes and urban legends we've all heard before. Y'all must have some sad lives to lie about stuff like this to a bunch of internet strangers, lol.
My name is Michaela, pronounced mih-KAY-luh, but people ALWAYS pronounce it like they are saying Michael with an "a" tacked on the end or Mishella. I even corrected them before I graduated high school, but the guy on stage still pronounced it wrong when I walked up to get my diploma. It's just part if having a less-than-usual spelling of a name.
I'm sorry OP, but I think I would do that too. That is just what your name looks like.
See, 1person has shown you the truth, it really doesn't matter what your name is, people will bastardize it to it's funniest version. Richard, becomes Dick, Max, becomes Maxi-pad, take it in humor, and don't hang out with dumb people who only repeat the dumb joke.
that's kinda rough, but if you can't beat them join them. when they see your name say how to proprly say yoir name then tell them its not pronounced your anus. food ice breaker and get some humor in there. ;)
Actually I think you're missing the point.. This guy had the right idea..majority if people are not gonna pronounce this name right when they first see it..just like with my name Kyra. Most people pronounce it as Keerah but it's really K-eye-ra. And my friend Simone's name is pronounced Simon and he's a guy we both just laugh about it and make the best of it..its not like people are doing it on purpose!
I read "ja" as sounding just like "jaw." Is that right? Because if so, I'm sorry, but hardly anyone in America is going to get it right without you explaining it first.
I think the "ja" is as in "janitor", maybe slightly longer "a". I can't quite understand why the rest is supposed to be pronounced "ra-nees", though. I just don't know of a language where "re" is pronounced as "ra"... am sure that one such language exists, though. At this point, I'm just curious as to whether OP was born in an english speaking country or merely moved there with his family. Latter one would explain the difference between how one would read the name and how it's supposed to be pronounced, while the former one would work with examples of e.g. Naiphthan(Nathan) or Allyzzabeth(Elizabeth).
