Dashing Name thanks to Barry McCartney

This girl spells her name    “Le-a
How would YOU pronounce her name?
Leah ?
Lee - A ?
Lay - a ?
Lei ?
She attends a school in Livingston Parish, Louisiana.
Her mother is irate because everyone is getting her name wrong.
She says it’s pronounced,  “Ledasha”.
When the mother was asked why it should be pronounced that way, she said ... “ ’cause the dash don’t be silent! ”.
So, if you ever come across a name like this, remember to pronounce the dash.
And, if anyone axe you why, tell them it’s ’cause the dash don’t be silent!
