I noticed there was no comments in re:name pronunciation! This name has an unusual pronunciation of "Sig-neh" almost with an "a" sound at the end.

Actually one of my best friend's name is Signe and it is pronounced Sig-nee with an e sound instead of a.

The Swedish pronunciation of Signe is "SING-neh" (almost like "SING-nay").

Ylva, I think most of the people in Sweden pronounce it Sig-neh but not with an "a" sound. I like the name anyway.

About if it's like an "e" or an "a" on the end: I think this depends on where you live. I always spell it with "e", but maybe in other parts of Sweden it's spelled with an "a" on the end.

The G is not hard, it is SING-neh, not SIG- and never an A sound, no matter where you live in Sweden.

My name is Signe, and I live in Denmark. Here the name is pronounced "SEE-nu", with the E in the end sounding almost like the O in 'world' and the U in 'curl'.

My name is Signe, my father is from Norway and my mother is half Norwegian. I was named after a favorite cousin of my father. We have other Signes in the family in Norway. My name is pronounced Sig-neh in Norway. In the US I have always been called Sig-nee, I believe because it is similar to the popular Courtney, Britney, Tiffany etc., I don't correct people on the pronunciation of my name. I do a lot of international business and it has been fun to be able to guess when someone asks for me if they are Norwegian, Danish, Swedish, or an Icelander, each region of Scandinavia seems to pronounce Signe differently. The French also have a name Signe which seems to be pronounced Sin-ae, at least that is what my French customers always seem to say. I was told the name means conquering perception, or victory.
