Pronounced the same.
But in my mind, Consuela and Konswella are not
pronounced the same! I know, I'm preaching to the choir here, but that's one of my big problems with creatively-spelled names. To me it's a totally different (though admittedly similar) name--the second vowel sound is different. In Consuela it's an AY sound like in baby
, while in Konswella it's an EH sound like in hello
. Well, that's how I would pronounce them, anyway.
It's like the people who use Kinnadi for Kennedy. Kin and ken, like pin and pen, are totally different vowel sounds to me. Not to mention Adie vs. Eddie for the end. I do understand that some people (like my mom for instance) can't hear the difference between pin and pen, though. And, if you're considering Kinnadi for Kennedy, your number one concern is obviously not clarity, or you would spell it in the way that more people know.
