So up untill a few months ago (when I met a girl named [name_f]Katherine[/name_f]) I figured the name spelled K-A-T-H-E-R-I-N-E (or C-A-T-H-E-R-I-N-E) was pronounced as: kath-er-inn. I also figured the alternative spelling of K-A-T-H-R-Y-N was pronounced different: Kath-rinn. I was later correct and told both names are pronounced the same: kath-rinn. But, I still hear people say kath-er-inn all the time. Then, there is [name_f]Katharine[/name_f], I would assume is pronounced Kath-ah-rinn.
Basically, how do you pronounce [name_f]Katherine[/name_f], [name_f]Kathryn[/name_f], and [name_f]Katharine[/name_f]?
