"My name is really different to the usual spelling, it's spelt Lyoni (Lee-oh-ni). I've had alot of people mispronounce my name saying "Lie-oh-ni". I personally really like my name and would like to know if anyone else shares the same spelling as I, considering it to be a really unusual spelling." Sep. 16, 2017:
"My name is Leonie and it's pronounced Lay-oh-nee but everyone says Leeee-oh ni it's very irritating" Jan. 29, 2017:
"This is my name and I like it; its the french pronunciation LAY-o-nie, but i am forever having problems with people saying it wrong or mishearing it. I have had to change my names in jobs because people get it wrong on the phon;, most often people think its 'Naomi' and when they see it spelt out, they always say 'Lee-OH-nie' which irritates me coz it doesn't sound as nice to me and its not my name. I have millions of nicknames, many have no resemblance to my actual name at all as it's not one that's easily shortened." Nov. 20, 2012:
