  • "My name is Yahaira too, and I also get most people saying it wrong. It takes years to get it right for some people. But most do not ever get it right and they don't understan why the "r" sounds like a "d". I have actually been accused of lying about my name to make it cooler. Usually people call me Ya-high-ra. But I always tell them its Ya-High-da because most people cannot roll their rrr's like us fabulous spanish folk." Aug. 9, 2005: Report as inappropriate

  • "I've been called EVERYTHING... "ya-HAIR-ah", "ya-hee-rah", even -- get this "gel-ep-ise" (go figure!). Correct way of saying it "Ya-high-dah". When you say it right, in Spanish, your tongue rolls and king of has a "d' sound to it. It's the BEST way I can describe it. Granted, my girlfriend "yajaira" (yes, we have the same name) says her name "yah-high-rah" (when she introduces herself in english) sounds like a "d" to many people" Jun. 24, 2005: Report as inappropriate
