Thanks. Its funny because thats what I said to her at the end of the day. I guess the lady is always right. Anyway the dispute was just a joking matter but I wondered if there was an actual pronunciation by english language standards, if there were such a thing. And we had a funny bet to see who can prove who wrong.
As for the meaning I thought there would be. In the words of Daneisha, your saying "It's a ghetto name". But she's not a "ghetto girl". Thank you Mina or Melina, whichver you like, I appreciate your time and response
