Usually it’s “CHE-sher” but sometimes I’ll over-correct and say “CHe-SHY-er”.

Let’s see how other DCUers pronounce her name! :loud_sound:

That’s how they say it in young justice, that’s what I grew up on, therefore I say che-sher.

I believe “CHE-sher” is the correct pronunciation of the original word, so that’s how I’ve always said it.

I normally say “Ches-shire” but with YJ I have started to say “Chesh-er”. I just swap.

That’s my lady. Nuclear bomb excused for me when you’re that hot. Not really, but I figured I’d defend myself b4 someone said I love girls who blow up states. I don’t. Just love Cheshire.

obviously its “Che-SHY-er” can’t give her just 2 syllables she’s not that basic

I’ve pronounced it both ways, but I lean more towards “Cheh-shy-er”.
