    Pronunciation of Circe?

    Just curious how you pronounce Circe. Also wonder if it sounds like it is pronounced differently depending on your accent?

    It's KIR-kee or SUR-see (long u, as in nurse). The former is the correct Greek way, but the latter is perfectly acceptable even among classicists.

    Yep. Same here. Well I say 'keer-kee' but close enough to how Ottilie says it.
