chadtizzle, arabic is spoken in so many countries and so many dialects so things like these names will be said differently depending who you talk to just like some words me other things (some places shisha means the hookah it self, one of my friends knows it like this so when im around him say tobacco instead of shisha).
even the brand mya is pronounced in multiple ways (me-ah and my-ah). if your close most people will know what you mean
