@futuremama - Thanks! I’ve added that one to the poll.

[name_f]My[/name_f] first instinct was actually ZAU-sih-mee, kind of more like [name_m]Cosmo[/name_m]

I’ve only ever seen this as a (male) [name_u]French[/name_u] name, a variant of [name_m]Zosimus[/name_m], so my instinct was “zoh-SEEM”. But this

is beautiful! :heart_eyes:

Thank you to everyone who voted and commented, with a special shoutout to @emmievis for weighing in on the Greek pronunciation - and to @rosepip for knowing who to call! :wink:

Zoh-Zheem, maybe Zoh-See-May or Zo-Seem but not the others.
