In my literature classes, I've heard this pronounced a few different ways. Naw-sih-KAY-ah, naw-SHEE-kah, and now-see-KAY-eh. I'm not sure which is correct.

In English, Nausicaa can be pronounced either now-SI-kee-uh, or now-si-KAY-uh. If spelled Nausicaä, then the second pronunciation is the only one.

In modern Greek, however, it is pronounced nahf-si-KAH.
