    I have friends with "unusual" names like "Seb" "Said" "Amir" "Ahmed"

    I know there is a place for "phonetic name" but I'm not sure how do I type it out..


    do I write "Ah-mee-r" for Amir?


    Please help.. thanks

    I think you have to nickname your friends with the phonetic spelling of their name.

    For phonetic first name, try "Ah Meer". Break it down into syllables, with a space between each. Might take some trial & error to get it just right.
