Now I want to hear @penelope_lynson say all of those to see how it differs from me :joy:! I second [name_f]Helena[/name_f] and [name_f]Anais[/name_f]/Anaïs. Also [name_f]Eluned[/name_f], [name_f]Luned[/name_f], Lunet, and [name_f]Amoret[/name_f]. I want to hear how different people pronounce [name_f]Elena[/name_f]. [name_f]Poppy[/name_f], can you type out how you pronounce [name_f]Wilhelmina[/name_f], [name_f]Josephine[/name_f], and [name_f]Lorraine[/name_f]?

I second Elena.

Wilhelmina - more like Will-hell-mee-nah instead of Willa-mee-nah (yes I like it more with hell :grin:)
Josephine - https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=JR271xbXtg8
Lorraine - https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=HzQmrpGQnxk

French is a family language, btw

Wow, I can’t imagine saying a name with such a french accent :joy:!

Oh! And [name_f]Cosette[/name_f]! (I always soften the s sound, but some people pronounce it with a z sound.)

There’s a thread going around about how to pronounce [name_m]Xavi[/name_m] with lots of different opinions.

Aveline, maybe?
Also [name_u]Endellion[/name_u]- I say it like En-dee-lee-on or En-dee-lee-in, but others say En-dell-yin.
[name_m]Lyons[/name_m]
[name_f]Madelief[/name_f]
[name_f]Calluna[/name_f]
[name_f]Ana[/name_f]
[name_f]Genevieve[/name_f] (I know some people pronounce it like [name_f]Zhen[/name_f]-vee-ev (with the zhen almost sounding like it has a short o, like in [name_m]John[/name_m]), but I usually say [name_f]Gen[/name_f]-uh-veev, I want to know if it’s correct at all)
[name_m]Cassius[/name_m]/Cassio/Cassian
Thalatte
[name_f]Thaleia[/name_f]
[name_f]Astraea[/name_f]
Several Irish names (because I’ve seen them different ways in different places) such as: [name_f]Saoirse[/name_f], Caiomhe, and [name_f]Aoife[/name_f]

Oh and [name_m]Endymion[/name_m]
