My sister always planned on naming a child Guillaume, until it occured to her that it is pronounced Gee-om, like the Dublin slang for female genital, gee.

I don't like this name. It looks hard to pronounce.

I love this name. It looks so elegant and romantic. I like the sound of it as well, the pronunciation may need correcting at first, but it's a beautiful name regardless.

I love this masculine yet elegant name but if it were used in the U.S. the pronunciation would be butchered constantly.

I know a Guillaume who is a very good person.
But I personally think this is also a very good name.
