A mother in Louisiana named her baby girl "Le-a". OKAY. How would you pronounce this child's name: "Le-a"? Leah?? NOLee - A?? NOPELay - a?? NOLei?? Guess Again. This child attends a school in Livingston Parish, LA. Her mother is irate because everyone is getting her name wrong. It's pronounced "Ledasha".When the Mother was asked about the pronunciation of the name, she said, "the dash don't be silent.." SO, if you see something come across your desk like this please remember to pronounce the dash.
