If the syllable for the first syllable of the child name ends in a consonant, remove the consonant. In some cases the parents may decide to name the child after flower, or plant.

Example:

  • Father: Jay'le Daur
    • Child 1: Jay + Ty = Jay'ty Daur
    • Child 2: Ty + le = Ty'le Daur
    • Child 3: Do r + Jay = Do'jay Daur
