Reply to: Luned - pronunciation? by Emma
Luned is pronounced: Lin-ed. Your reference to an umlaut leads me to believe that you may have heard it pronounced in a North Welsh accent. It is true that "u" in Welsh is normally pronounced like an "ee" far back in the throat, but all the people of this name I've met have pronounced it in the way I've given. Indeed, a relative of mine called Eluned was always known as "Lynn"

It is, in fact, short for Eluned, which is pronounced: El-lin-ed, with the stress on the middle syllable, as you correctly stated.
