Pronounced el-u-NED, but the U is a bit like a French U and the D is quite soft, almost like a T.

I like this variant better than Luned. Without the beginning "eh" sound, the name sounds too harsh.

Actually, it's pronounced "EL-ee-ned".

To correct the previous people-- the pronunciation is in fact EL-in-ed. (The U is sort of like a short "i".)

- A Welshwoman.

There's one in my family and I've known a few others, who all pronounce it el-IN-ed (in being somewhere between een and in).

- another Welshwoman.

To state the obvious, average English/Americans would likely innocently mistake the pronunciation... in result, would sound like and resemble "A-Loon", and in our culture a "Loon" is basically a crazy person, to put it gently. Perhaps if you are of Welsh heritage and are past the grade-school age, you wouldn't come across many issues. Children in English-speaking countries would be subject to merciless banter and unwanted, unnecessary attention.
