Okay, so there aren’t THAT many ways to say my name but over my life I’ve encountered a fair few. They range from:
the usual – Ellery (rhymes with celery)
to the humorous – Elluury (el-UR-ee)
to the utterly wrong – Allerie
and to the total surrender – ‘I’m not even going to try and pronounce your name’.
Throughout school and even university life there aren’t many people who don’t get to hear the words: “It’s Eh-LAIR-ree”
reminding everyone of the scene in Harry Potter….
“It’s levi-O-sa! Not levi-OHSAR”
But it is reassuring to know that if I was a spell, everyone trying to cast me would get a face full of soot.
However, on the more serious side, Hi! My name is Eleri Simpson and I am just beginning a, hopefully, long and fruitful career as a student Blogger for the school of Geology. Please feel free to leave a comment on any of my blogs and I will endeavour to reply swiftly. But, as my good friend Thumper always says ‘If you can’t say something nice, don’t say nothing at all’.
TTFN! Ta ta for now!
