Sounds like how someone in Boston would pronounce that Darth fella’s name.

Funny, but true-

I told you that as a teacher, I’ve seen my share of interesting names.

I had a student a few years back whose name was pronounced like this, but spelled “Veda.” Her parents were of Indian (not American, but India-Indian) descent.
I’m assuming this was referring to the “Rigveda,” the sacred collection of Hindu/Sanskrit hymns.

I’ve noticed that lots of people go with obscure religious references — just because they refer to their religion. Religion is not a good excuse to name your kid Absalon, Zabdiel, or anything in between!
