What’s in a Name?

How would you pronounce this child’s name:
 
             "Le-a"
 
Leah??                NO
Lee – A??            NOPE
Lay – a??             NO
Lei??                    Guess Again.
 
This child attends a school in Detroit, MI. Her mother is irate because everyone is getting her name wrong. It’s pronounced "Ledasha", When the Mother was asked about the pronunciation of the name, she said, "the dash don’t be silent."
 
SO, if you see something come across your desk like this please remember to pronounce the dash. If they axe you why, tell them the dash don’t be silent.
