Nadezhda: How It's Said


After watching the video, I realized that I forgot to mention that the letters that make the odd sound (like the "s" in pleasure) are the "zh" in Nadezhda.  For those of you who have been asking, I hope that this is helpful.  But you are welcome to continue calling her Nadia, of course!

Wow, Cristy, that's really pretty! I'm glad you posted how to pronounce it... I'd assumed (wrongly!) that "Nadia" WAS how it was pronounced, if it was spelled in English phonetics. I love both names!

Oh Cristy her name is beautiful!! How lovely it sounds. And how sweet it is to see your children together!

And you are a very good teacher!!

Hope you all are doing well.
