32 Popular Baby Names That Are Often Mispronounced
You might recall seeing some headlines about Demi Lovato or Demi Moore “teaching” people to pronounce their shared first name. And that might have led you to question what you could have possibly being doing wrong when saying the seemingly simple name. Demi rhymes with “semi,” correct? There are some slight differences in how to say it. There is “DEH-me” or “DUH-me.” Fun fact: The name is of Greek origin and it is the shortened form of Demetria. Now that we know the shortened version can have varied pronunciations, we are glad that Demetria hasn’t skyrocketed in popularity — even if it is a very striking name.
