The proper way to say it is neh-ree-dah, not neh-rider.

I have always pronounced it with all vowels in the short form and no emphasis on any syllable. I actually get a bit miffed and correct anyone who pronounces it otherwise. I didn't know until today it should actually be Nereeda.

Also can be spelt 'Neridah' and pronounced Ne-REE-dah, opposed to to Ne-re-da.

This name is not very common, even in Australia.

It is also occasionally spelt 'Neridah.'

Though it does have a lot of consonants, I love the name Nerida. It has a beautiful sound, and reminds me of nereids, which are like water nymphs and Pablo Neruda (I'm not one for poetry but I love his writings). I'm always looking for unusual names from different languages (like Filipino, Nahuatl, Romansch), and a beautiful name from an Indigenous Australian certainly fits the bill. (Wish I knew what exact language it comes from, though.)
