Comments for the name Ragnhild

Comments for RAGNHILD:

I hear it's pronounced "Rung-nil", but I could be mistaken. I used to pronounce it "Roun-hild". Whoops!

In Denmark we pronounce this name as 'roun-hill'. I always thought it had something to do with ravens as the Danish word for raven is ravn (pronounced like round without the d - aka the same sound as ragn in Ragnhild).

I think it's a strong name!

In Norway 'Ragnhild' can be pronounced in two ways - either /'ragn-hild/ or /'raŋn-(h)ild/. Grammatically, the former pronunciation is the right one, but people tend to be lazy so many favour the latter - the latter is certainly the easiest to pronounce.
