Very cute. Now how do you pronounce that?

Tierchen on

This name is very common and traditional in Germany, it has about 3-4 different spellings! It is pronounced: MAH-TEE-AHS.

LOVE the name. I could be biased since I’m swedish. 🙂

MAH-TEE-AS is probably how I would write the pronounciation too.

I love their sons’ names. They’re foreign but not too foreign, if you know what I mean. They’re great names.

Amanda on

It could also be prnounced MAH-THI-US

“It could also be prnounced MAH-THI-US”
