Boy, does this thread take me back.
When I was entering my first year of high school, we had a female classmate who had an unusual first name.
It was spelled "Rhuyna." In the beginning, everyone called her "Rayhoona," which was understandable given the spelling.
Correctly pronounced, it was: Renee or phonetically, "Renay.' Who'd a thunk it?
