Just adding this: I had a greek professor at university and she said sur-see. Pronunciations evolve and change over time (hebrew names is a great example of this). I don't get mad when people can't pronounce norwegian or norse names correctly, I realize the sounds are hard and different for english-speakers.
If you don't want a bad guy, Circe is probably not the right choice for you though! I myself think she was kind of cool, but that's just me I guess.

German" names that aren't actually German but instead Germanic. This drives me nutty and it's a problem on other sites as well. I figure once I have a larger list I can post it for P@m and Lind@ to consider all at once and not one at a time. Might be a good suggestion for you too do as well.
PS: Sorry for temporarily hijacking the feed....if my husbands has no vote, then....

Maybe, just like in America, people say things differently in different parts of Greece. I have a friend who's half Sicilian and half Greek. His mom has lived in America for... Eleven years now and his dad moved in about 2 and 1/2 years ago to be with his grandkids. He's really from Greece, born and raised and since I'm so into Greek mythology, we talk a lot. He pronounces Circe like seer-see. Certainly a real Greek (not two generations removed or whatever) would say it correctly. He isn't very Americanized at all... I don't really know, but I'd believe him over a website any day.Kylee
