Sometimes Dwyane Wade simply refers to baby Kaavia as the Miracle Baby. But the baby with the biggest most adorable eyes (see below!) goes by her given name more often. And that given name is Kaavia James Union Wade. But wait, how do you properly pronounce the first name of the gorgeous Kaavia James? People have been wondering on social media. Now we have the answer.
Is it three syllables, as it seems? Well, it helps to remember that nothing is necessarily as it seems when it comes to pronouncing names in this family — and spelling is not a reliable guide, really. (They do things their own way!) Consider Dwyane Wade – that’s d-w-Y-a-n-e. (A more typical spelling is Dwayne, the way Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson spells his name.) Anyway, Mama Gabrielle helpfully answered the Kaavia name question on Twitter, revealing that Kaavia’s name is pronounced Kaaaahhh-v-uh. That’s a long v, as in “vee” we believe.
