Like Audrey with a R- in front? Rowr-jree?

Are you serious? It's pronounced Rory. It says it right on the page.

Can be said Rear-ee.

Actually, I thought it was pronounced Roo-uh-ree, but I could be wrong.

Technically, by Gaelic pronunciation, it is rOO-uh-rEE, however because the "aidh" is guttural and is lightly sounded when not speaking slowly, the name can sound like rOO-rEE to people unaccustomed to Gaelic pronunciation.

I enjoy this name. It's my name, but I spell it Rori. I like this older version of my name. I had heard it before, but it was pronounced RAWD-RHE, which I know not to be correct.
