  • "My name is Naomi, pronounced Nay-OH-mee and I love my name but get super annoyed when people pronounce is NIGH-oh-mee! Although I am pretty used to it I hate it especially when people ask me how its pronounced and I tell them, but then they just pronounce it wrong! My middle name is Keziah (pronounced Kez-EE-ah) and I love the name combination! Naomi Keziah!" May. 22, 2020: Report as inappropriate

  • "Just like almost everyone else in the comments, my name is also Naomi. I never realized that there were multiple ways to pronounce it until a few years ago when people began asking me how I pronounce it. Even now I don't really notice a difference. However I began realizing that when someone asks my name to write it down if I don't say n-ay-omi then they miss spell it by using an I instead of an a. I really like my name and love that it's a biblical name. I do know about five other naomis and about two people who have Naomi as their middle name. Almost all the Naomis I know are younger than me, so growing up I didn't know of any other Naomis. Guess it recently got popular. But yea I really like my name and I don't care if people misspell it or pronounce it because it happened to almost everyone." Feb. 15, 2018: Report as inappropriate

  • "It is such a beautiful name, and I love being called it ! However, there are so many different pronunciations, and I just wanted to say that it can be frustrating when you are consistently called the wrong thing. One teacher firmly believed in the wrong pronunciation, so in a lesson, he said that my actual way was cringey!" Feb. 7, 2017: Report as inappropriate

I have never thought about this before, but since my teacher asked me how it was pronounced, I have began to dislike it when they call me Niomi.

Unlike others - I prefer and say Niomi (though I am in theory a Naomi)... I recently started a new job and it made me laugh when they told me they spent 30 mins having an office wide debate about how to say my name. I think Na-o-mi sounds very formal and harsh... I would prefer Naermie... But all in all don't get overly irritated by it, it's one of the wonderful things about being called Naomi is that you can choose the prenunciation. Nicknames have included: Nay, Nimi, Nomes, Ni, Naz, Nims, Nome." Oct. 27, 2010: Report as inappropriate

  • "Naomi happens to be my name too, and I always loved my name, it wasn't common at all when I grew up so I loved being different than the other kids growing up, now however a few more people are naming their kids Naomi. I still wouldn't call it common which people tend to say it is. It's not as common as names like Kathy, Jennifer, Amy or Megan and I've only seen only around 3 other Naomi's not within the same time frame quite a few years apart. I also can not stand it when people say it wrong and tell me that it's a hard name to say. It really isn't hard to say at all. It's pronounced just the way it's spelled and it has the same two first letters as the word name, so you'd think people would figure that out. Besides their already is an American Indian name that sounds like Ni-ohm-e. Might as well call Branden, Brendon for a guy. One time own 2 year old called me by my name Naomi by accident and she even pronounced it right. If a 2 year old can pronounce it right then everybody should be able to pronounce it right."

  • "My name is spelled Naomi but pronounced 'Nay-oh-muh'. I hated my name growing up. No one, not even the people in my family would pronounce it right. Whenever I talk to customer service I simply refer to myself as Na-oh-mee to save the discussion. However, as I've grown up, it has been something I've found sets me apart from the crowd and for those who care enough to be my friend, they will make the effort to pronounce it correctly. Everyone else is naturally forgiven, it is after all spelled the common way. I actually like how it looks written down with the 'i' at the end but prefer the softer sounding short 'u' sound at the end. There were three older adults close to our family who pronounced Naomi as "Nay-oh-muh" and I believed I was named for one of them." Jun. 13, 2014: Report as inappropriate

  • "We named our sweet baby girl Naomi, pronouncing it nay-OH-mee, the only way we'd ever heard. We had no idea what we signed up for. Apparently, many people pronounce this name nigh-OH-mee, in my experience, about 50% of the time. This happens right after I've clearly told them she is NAY-omi. "Oh! Hello Nigh-omi!" They say. I feel frustrated and disappointed. I am frustrated that people are so... lazy? Deaf? Inarticulate?? What is the problem? Can you say "They owe me"? Then why not Nay-omee? Sorry, I'm venting because of point #2, my disappointment. I'm disappointed because Naomi is, in my opinion, an unusable name, unless you are okay with constant mispronunciation. It's not as simple as a quick correction, the nigh-omi camp is not easily converted, and will continue to say it their way in spite of repeated efforts on your part. If you like the name nigh-omi just as well as nay-omi, and you feel sure that your daughter won't mind going by both names for life, then have at it. For us this is a deal breaker, we have decided to use her middle name instead." Nov. 21, 2012: Report as inappropriate

My mother was told that the "i" in Naomi was pronounced like an "a" (similar to what the townsfolk of Miami, Tx claim). To lend a bit of creditiliby to this pronunciation, we have a census record from the early 1900s wherein the census clerk listed my grandmother as "Naoma" even though her name was spelled "Naomi." So apparently anything goes with this name. :-)" Jun. 17, 2012: Report as inappropriate

  • "My mum always told me (and those around us!) the pronunciation of Naomi was more like Nay-u-me, and to not over emphasise the 'o'.

I don't understand why there is a debate on how to pronounce "Naomi." There is a name called "Naiomi" and it's spelled with an "I" in it. Attention parents: If you like the name "Naiomi," pick the right spelling. Do not name her "Naomi" and say it "Naiomi.." You're just making it more difficult for all the other Naomi's out there who have to CONSTANTLY correct people. In reponse to the person who pronounces it "n'air'mi": That's just dumb.

This was fortunate, as there were already two other Naomi's in the boarding school, but no Sam's. I soon changed back to Naomi once I realised how 'dull' Sam was. I prefer my name to be pronounced Naomi - with a dipthong between the a and o making it closer to nayamee (sort of) and loathe the ever mistaken Nighohmee.
