: I would like to know how to spell the phrase: La-D-Da or La-T-Da. We are in a ladies group and we just named ourselves the "La-D-Da Sisters", but we are now having a difference of opinion if we spelled the phrase correctly. Some think the phrase has a "T" and some think it has a "D" in the middle. What is correct?

According to the dictionary, "t" will not be served:

la-di-da also la-de-da
adj. Informal
Affectedly genteel; pretentious.

Used to express disdain for something viewed as pretentious.
