The reason behind people naturally pronouncing "Ceri" as "sair-ee" is that in English, a "C" before an "E" is traditionally pronounced as an "S". I find it very hard to believe that so many people believe that others should be well brought-up in Welsh as to articulate it as "care-ee"/"KE-re", or the such.

All in all, unless it is pronounced "sair-ee", I really am not a large fan of this diminutive... nor am I a fan of "Ceridwen", by any means.
