    Thanks, Dantea! I've been wondering about Adrasteia {a-dras'-tee-uh} for quite some time. I heard it pronounced as ah-dra-STAY-ah and found it lovely. While I'm disappointed that it is not correct, I still like it a lot for a middle name, mainly for it's meaning.

    Hi, I have a question about stress. When you pronounce "Ione" is it EE-oh-knee, ee-OH-knee, EE-OH-knee, or something else? Thank-you!

    I wish this forum had stickies. Or at least, one sticky with links to useful threads. I've never seen this one, but it's terrific and so helpful! Would it be terribly difficult to implement a feature like that into a forum? Most forums I've been in have them, or at least one with links as I said.

    Thank you so much for this list! I adore Greek mythological names! I've been wondering recently about Kleio. I've seen it pronounced klee-oh & kly-oh. Which is correct? Also, is Clio an acceptable alternative spelling? Wikipedia, for example, describes the muse as "Clio or Kleio". Thank you!!

    Thank you for posting! I just skimmed it for now, but was pleasantly surprised that I pronounce all of the ones I remember learning about correctly.
