How do you pronounce Xanthe?
I've heard quite a few different pronunciations and now I am a bit confused on how it's supposed to be pronounced. I am considering it for my little girl but I need to know how to pronounce it first. My husband and I have been pronouncing it zan-tha. Most of our family members and friends say zanth. And the rest say it zan-thee.
So how do you pronounce Xanthe?
PS: How does Xanthe Artemis sound to you?

I believe it's pronounced zan-tha, but I prefer zan-thee.

You & your husband are correct. It's pronounced zan-tha. It's beautiful! I hope you choose it!
