Even though I like it either way, I'm curious as to whether this name is supposed to be pronounced ver-dan-dee or ver-don-dee.

In Icelandic, Verdandi (Verðandi) means becoming/to become.

In Norwegian this name is spelled Verdande, and pronounced Ver-dan-deh. I have never actually heard of anyone being Verdande though.

It says that Verdandi means "necessity". This is incorrect. Skuld is "necessity". Verdandi is "Being". (Gods and Myths of the Viking Age, H. R. Ellis Davidson, Page 26). [noted -ed]

This name is so precious! It has "dandy" in it! Haha.

As to whether it is pronounced ver-dan-dee or ver-don-dee really depends on the namer as it is common among Norse names, especially ones from mythology and other Germanic languages in general, that vowels are very open to change. You might even pronounce it ver-den-dee. Take a look at some other English, Germanic, Norse, Finnish names and look at their origin words and how the verbs are interchangeable.

At least in Sweden it would be pronounced vair-dun-dee.
