I have a friend named Eunice but goes by Nikki. She pronounces it YOO-NEECE but I've always heard it YOO-NIS.

This is my name and I've always rocked it pretty well, thank you very much, despite the fact that 1) almost nobody can spell it and 2) the only cool person to have borne it was Nina Simone. But it's nice to be the only bearer of your name in any given zip code! ;)

From traveling, I've discovered the following pronunciations: "ou-NEECE" in French, "ef-nee-KEE" in modern Greek (this was a guess hazarded to me; the transliteration was difficult to figure out), "eh-ooh-NEE-see" in Brazilian Portuguese, and "eh-ooh-NEE-seh" in Spanish.

The '-nike'/'-nice' particle of the name refers to Nike, the Greek goddess of victory, which is what the Nike sportswear brand is named after. How's that for a namesake? :)
