Comments for the name Danica

Comments for DANICA:

My name is Danica. It is pronounced Da-nik-a. I have seen some discussion on the pronunciation of it and I wanted to add my two cents. I rarely get someone who can appropriately pronounce my name unless they are European. Most Americans pronounce it Dan-eeka.

I've heard "Danica" pronounced two different ways: "dan-ika" and "daw-nika." It's a very pretty name; I like it a lot. It is also the first name of the main character of Hawksong by Amelia Atwater-Rhodes.

This name, according to the Serbian script, is pronounced dah-nee-tsa. This is a very pretty name IMO. I love the meaning of it too.

My name's Danica. I live in the UK, and I pronounce it DAN-i-kah. (Though I wouldn't say there was obvious emphasis on any of the syllables really) There seems to be a great range of differing pronunciations for this name.

I derived this username, Weaponstar, from the meaning "morning star", because a morning star is also a medieval weapon (a bit like a mace).

Danica is correctly pronounced "Dah-NEETS-ah." It is butchered with the incorrect pronunciations "DAN-ick-ah" or "Dan-ee-kah."

With that Cyrillic spelling it seems it should be dah-nee-tsah.

Danica can be pronounced two ways, my friend is Da-nica, that is so much better than how people always say Dan-i-ca.
