But...how is it pronounced?

I find the site's suggested root words for this name interesting. If "Iđ" means "again," one can take "again" and say it as "over and over again"... "continuous"... "never ending"... "everlasting." And "unna" is stated to mean "to love." Perhaps "Iđunn" can mean "everlasting love." She is the goddess of immortality and spring. What if the Old Norse, when coming up with this character, meant to say that everlasting love brings life and can surpass death? This is why I love this name.

The name is properly Anglicized as Ithun. Ithun is pronounced "EE-thoon" with a soft "th" as in breathe.

Where I live I am certain this name would be mispronounced as Ethan.

Pronounced ee-THUN, with a hard 'th' diphthong like in "that".

Personally, I think Iðunn sounds much prettier than Idun, or any of the other related named that replaced 'ð' with a 'd' instead of a 'th' diphthong. Maybe I could add Ithunn to this site.

Pronounced EYE-thun?

Very pretty.
