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.

I have also come across the variants Naushika, Nausikaá, Nausikaä, and Nausikaya.

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.

I think it's kinda pretentious to be using on a child. Although I do really like Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind, one of my favorite films!
