So today for the Challenge, we're on to names that start with E. I found the pronunciations to be challenging with most of these names. I'll bet if you hear some of them spoken, you'll wonder for a second if you heard right, especially in relation to how they are spelled.
Ealasaid (f) Pronunciation: YAH-luh-sutch, promise of God, origin – Hebrew/Scottish
Edna (f) Little seed or kernel, origin – Gaelic (This is my mother's name)
Efa (f) Pronunciation: EEF-ə, living and breathing, variation of Eve, origin - Hebrew
Eadric (m) Pronunciation: EED-rik, wealthy monarch, origin - English
Eanraig (m) Pronunciation: EN-rik, ruler of the house, origin – Scottish/Germanic
Eetu (m) Pronunciation: EH-tu, wealthy guard, origin – English/Finnish
I'm sure your favourite E names would be a bit easier on the tongue.
