How Do You Spell REESE?

The spelling of the word "Reese" can be a bit tricky. It is pronounced as [ɹiz], with the phonetic transcription indicating a voiced alveolar fricative followed by a voiced front-close rounded vowel. The spelling of the word uses a double "e" instead of "ie" as expected because of the vowel sound. This is because it is an anglicized version of the Welsh name "Rhys", which is pronounced [r̥iːs] with a slightly different vowel sound. Hence, the spelling is a result of the word adapting to English language phonetics.
