User comments for Selene (Pronunciation Only)

Pronounced Sel-EEN.

I beg to differ, bellaboo. The original Greek name is pronounced see-LEE-nee, as read as it is written in the Greek alphabet, although it may be pronounced differently depending on the person giving the name. The goddess was called see-LEE-nee, and my sister's name is pronounced see-LEE-nee, but it is often mispronounced as see-LEEN or see-LEE-nu, and in one unfortunate case, su-LAH-mee. The pronunciation of any given name, however, is up to the person naming or named.

Classical Greek may also have this name pronounced as sel-een-ay.
