My wife and I are having a little debate. We are soon to be parents and discussing names. I like the name " Myles". She also likes it , but the debate is how to pronounce it when talking about possession. I say it's ...............Myles' toys or Myles' bed. Not " Myles's toys and you pronounce the two S's. I found different sites that say that both are correct but I'd like another opinion.

thanks,

Hi Jeff,

The convention is to say Myles's toys.
For older and famous names, the "apostrophe ess" is is sometimes, but not always, omitted. eg
Socrates' beliefs.
Dickens's novels.

Good luck to you both and to Myles.

Clive
