I quite like the Name [name]Valen[/name] ( as in the fist 2 syllables of [name]VALENtine[/name])
But today I discovered this names :
[name]Valene[/name] here is a link http://www.babynames.com/name/VALENE
[name]How[/name] would you pronounce this??? The same as [name]Valen[/name]??? Does the E make it more feminine or is it just a useless letter? Or do you pronounce it differently???
I would pronounce it [name]Val[/name] - een… But maybe it is supposed to be pronounced more in a French way - like Heléne?
I would pronounce it [name]Val[/name]-een.
[name]Valene[/name] [name]Ewing[/name] was a character on the TV show “Knots Landing” and she pronounced it her name “val-EEN”.
I’d say Valayna, but I’m probably in the minority.
Another who’d say “val-een”. The ending is the same as [name]Selene[/name] so I’d pronounce it with the same sound.
