How does Eva Longoria pronounce her first name?? - April 6th 2012, 06:17 PM

Because I've always heard different things... Ay-vah, Ee-vah... Anyone know her personally enough to know for sure??

She's my sister. It's EE-VAH.




P.S. She's not my sister. I'm just fairly confident xD

I've always pronounced it Ay-va. I'm thinking I'm wrong though.

I'm pretty sure it's EHH-VAA since it falls in line with the Spanish pronounciation (she is of Mexican descent).

Evita Peron had her shortform name 'Eva' pronounced the same way.

edit: bitey, I know her personally enough to know.

I heard someone say it on TV and they pronounced it "Ee-vah".
Plus there's a girl in my school with the same name and pronounces it that way.


And here you are living, despite it all.

I know, it doesn't help the confusion that every other Eva I've heard of says Ee-vah.

The North-American way to pronounce it is EEE-VUH, but the Spanish pronounciation is EHH-VAA. Eva is more commonly heard by English speaking people. Ms. Longoria is probably used to being called EEE-VUH than EHH-VAA since she lives in the U.S.

It's just like how the Polish pronunciation for Eva is Ewa.
