but it's pronounced has-mean because it's in Spanish.

but for some reason, my mom had this bright idea to go ahead and make the E silent, which is a thing of American grammar or something idk.

So in Mexico, people see my name and pronounce it as has-mean-eh.

Long story short, hey.
i had no idea. Thats really pretty!

my best friend knows a girl whos family came to the united states from mexico right before she was born and they didnt speak much english and i guess her parents thought "female" was an american name for girls so they named her "female" but its pronounced like "tamale"

It's pronounced tamale? Or was that a typo? Lol.

& thank you, It may be nice at times to have a kind of unique name for a girl, but nobody of any nationality can ever pronounce it right.

My own father spells my name in Spanish instead of English because "That's how it's supposed to be spelled." Which was Jazmin (Which I love so much more idk y)

Then my mom spells it in English and has to explain to everyone how to say my name.

Including my half brothers who are currently living with me. They say as-mean. Which is close enough, props to them for trying to pronounce my name after being in my life for the first time.

Lol.

Lol.
ya its like tamale but with an "f" at the beginning lol
and correcting people all the time must be annoying. My mom changed the spelling of my name to make it easier for people to pronounce (siobhan--> shavon) and they still get it wrong and call me "sharon" or "shawn" or "shave-in" or something ridiculous.

So it's like fah-mah-ley or do you pronounce tamale like tah-mah-leeee ?

Your name is so unique omg.

I did pronounce it as shave-in at first. Then I saw you say it was mistaken for that so is it, shah - von?
