Is there any sort of consensus on how these names are appropriately pronounced? Does it vary by language, and if so, which pronunciation would one use in English-speaking countries for these names?Sunniva
- I thought there was a consensus that this one was SOO-nee-va. However, babynamesworld is showing it as soo-NEE-va. The possibility of soo-NYE-va might exist too, I suppose, given the accepted pronunciation of the next one...Godiva
- Only ever heard go-DYE-va for this one, as in the chocolatier. I assume that's correct? And since it has the same origins as the others, should they end in EYE-va too?
Linniva - Which pattern above this this one follow - LINN-ee-va? lin-EYE-va? Something else?
Thanks for your insights!
