The Nanny on

Jen–I believe it’s either “Tol-mey” or “Tol-eh-mey.”

Poor kid, the pronounciation question is asked in every post about him!

It’s pronounced with a silent P.


Rachel-Jane I was thinking the same thing!
However I think that Ptolemy is a cute name,difficult but cute!
He is a gorgeous boy!

Now that is a CUTE baby. That’s how my husband and I check the diapers too: one distracts and one goes in for the check!

So many differen’t names and so many differen’t ways of spelling and pronouncing them so he won’t be the only one.
Love the name, I looked it up on and it said it’s pronounced TAHL-a-mee
