"my name is uriel many peopl dont know how to say it so they just call me uri ive only met 2 other people named like me one in atlanta and another in genoa illinois" Feb. 15, 2009:
"This is a very uncommon name. I come from a spanish speaking family and had no problems with the pronunciation of my name until I decided to go to college in the US. In spanish "U" sounds like "oo" in moon. "ri" as in "reel" and "el" as letter "l". So it would be something like oo-ree-"l" as you might know the sound of "r" in spanish is much stronger than in english.
Americans pronounce my name like you-re-"l"; It is kind of difficult for people to pronounce my name but I really like it since it is very different and unusual.

"Yeah this is my name as well and all I got to say is that is a pain introducing myself to new people because of how uncommon the name is they can never get pronunciation of the name correctly. It is not a complex name but it does not make me feel anymore unique having this name because of how awkward it is. My advice is if you are planning to name your son this just don't. Plenty of better names out there." Feb. 27, 2018:
