Hello - I'm new here

Welcome! That's an unusual name, how do you pronounce it?
Yes, my name is very unusual. Most people pronounce it as "Natalie" but it is actually pronounced Nuh (rhymes with duh) theel (rhymes with wheel). I don't know its origin - my grandmother read a book (sometime before 1923) and one of the characters had the name Margery Nathele. That became my mother's name. When I was born it became my first name. Then, Grandma forgot the name of the book so I don't know anything about the character!

Thank you all for your kind welcome.
