How would you say…

I was gonna do a quick poll but realized that I have no idea how diverse the pronunciation could potentially get.

So, short answer style, how would you pronounce [name_f]Zephyrine[/name_f]?

ZEFF-er-ryn (but it comes out like 2.5 syllables, almost like zeff-ryn)!

Zeff-er-in! I think I say it very similar to you, but I definitely say it with the full 3 syllables!

In [name_f]English[/name_f] — Zeh - fur - een or Zeh - fur - ine (like the word line). For your pronunciation I’d use Zephryin.

In my best imitation of Greek, which I don’t speak — Zeh-FEER-een or Zeh-FEER-ine. In Spanish I’d say it similar but with a softer Sehh sound at the beginning
