Fantastically peculiar. Odd names like this are a curiosity to me. :)

My aunt's name is Zenaide, spelled that way without the accents. That side of the family (my dad's) is Portuguese, from the Azores. She pronounces her name zeh-NIED (IE representing the long "i" sound).

The name Zénaïde would be pronounced 'zeh-na-eed' in French not 'zay-na-eed'. The accent aigu (accent acute) isn't pronounced 'ay'.

Zénaïde Bonaparte (1801-1854) was a niece of Napoleon. She was married to her cousin Charles, an ornithologist who named the Zenaida doves of Mexico after her.
