    Hi :wave:

    There's absolutely no way that I would've pronounced Tahlie as Tarrrrrr-lie! I read it's pronunciation as Ta-lee. Personally I wouldn't change the spelling. Not only does it sound beautiful, I love the original spelling! I would just politely correct people until they got the pronunciation right. Totally up to you though hun. x

    I don't think you should be judged at all. Which spelling to do prefer though? If you like it as it is I would keep it. People will only need told once!

    I'm the same. To me it's obviously 'Tah-lie- not 'tar-lie'.

    I would have read it as tarlie. I like the new spelling. I agree there's no need to feel bad. I would probably change it to prevent a lifetime of mis pronunciations and corrections

    If it's bothering you go ahead and change it. If you've had hassle getting people to say it right for the last 5 months imagine what her life will be like correcting people.

    Coming from someone who's name is NOT Joanne, I can tell you people do not just need to be told once. My name is Joanna and I've spent he hole
    Life shouting A! AT people who call me Joanne. It's got to a point now where unjust give in and respond to it
