  • "While I was pregnant with my daughter Sade', I was really stuck on names. While out to dinner with my mother one night, she said "how about Sade?" As soon as I heard it,I knew that was the name for my little girl to be. Growing up, I have so many memories of my mother listening to Sade the singer, she truly loved her music. The name fit her so well. Very rarely does anyone pronounce it correctly. While trying to figure out how to spell it, I thought of spelling it Shade, however I didn't want people to call her shade, so I spelled it exactly like the singer, except I added a tilda over the e to be different. I have only heard of 1 other Sade in the 7 years since my daughters birth. All of her teachers have always called her Sadie or even Chardonnay (like the wine).

It is a common Yoruba name and if you said it any other way to a Nigerian, they won't know what you were talking about. Although individuals do have a right to decide how they'll like their names to be pronounced. Sade the singer is Nigerian but I guess just wanted her name to be pronounced SHAR-DAY."

If you are old enough to remember her in the 80's & actually owned her albums on vinyl, then you will know that the record company printed pronounced (Shar-day) on the album cover.

  • "Spelling a name totally different than it is pronounced isn?t cute, or special, it is simply arrogant. Your parents simply wanted to put a big chip on their (and your) shoulder, and dare people to knock it off. If you want people to pronounce something a certain way in the USA, then spell it that way. How it might be written or spelled in some other country or ancient culture is irrelevant. It is no different than if an oriental person insisted that their name be written only in the original symbols, and feign irritation when people looking at it didn?t know how to pronounce it."

My nickname is Day, which I mostly invented because, it's easier to say, it's still somewhat unique, and I don't like hearing my name being mangled beyond recognition. I've heard: Sadie, Shade (Really? Shade? Yes.), Sahdiay, Sah-day, SHAR-day (That one irritates me), and Suh-day. I've learned to appreciate the uniqueness of my name, and the inevitability of its mispronunciation. On the plus side, I didn't realize so many people had the same name.
