"Damaris is my name and I used to always get bulllied with it. Every one would say : DUMB-maris.Any way, it made me cry! The good thing is that I do have a nickname for it, Mars, Mars Bar, D, DD, Demi or Dami. My most common one is Demi. Try one!!! It might suit u☺️" Jan. 21, 2018:
"My name is Damaris, though many people pronounce it wrong. Instead of dah - mah - ris
they say dah - mare - is and it gets really annoying because they can't remember it or know how to spell it. They usually spell it Damares or Dmaris or even Damris. I pronounce it with a hispanic accent. I love my name because of its uniqueness and it seems more like The Maris. I don't use a nickname though I love Maris. If they can't say my name right, I let it slide since I've gotten so used to it. My family says it correctly except for my brother, he says it Da - mare - is." Dec. 30, 2016:

"My name is also Damaris my mothere read it in a book by Victoria Holt...she interpreted the pronounciation as 'damn-ah-ris' although no one pronounces it this way first try, it's always 'duh-mare-is' or 'duh-mar-is'. Of course the teasing about having a "bad word" in my name still hasn't ended...so clever they are. Anyways, I like it's different, I haven't met another just have met people who knew someone who spelled it the same but pronounced it differently." Sep. 6, 2010:

"My name is Damaris.. It seems to be popular with Spanish speakers (I'm also Hispanic) though I've never met anyone else with the name.
I've had it spelled about 6 different ways and a lot of people say it as 'Damn-ah-ris' or "Dah-mahr-is' but I say it as 'Duh-mah-ris'. 'du' as in 'dumb', 'mah' as in 'math' and 'ris' as in 'wrist'. Hope it helps." Feb. 24, 2010:

"My name is Damaris and I pronounce it dah-mah-ris. My teachers and college professors have always pronounced my name wrong. It was very sedomly that they would say it correctly as a matter of fact I remenbered being asked in many occasions if I have a nickname because they weren't able to say my name. I have been called Demares Dimitria, Demitri and anything else you can think of. I dont understand why people have such a hard time pronouncing it to me it sounds like the way one would read it. I do have a nickname its Dee or Mari if you are a toddler ( all my little cousins who couldn't say my name still call me this til this day). I am Hispanic, and I do love my name. I have met a couple of girls named Damaris and coincedently My son's aunt is also a Damaris. I use to love the fact that almost no one had my name but it has become very popular throughout the years." Jun. 20, 2013:

"I pronounce my name Daa-ma-reese. I love it because it's different...people remember me. My family teases me now as an adult because in elementary school I wanted to be a "Maria."
