    Pronunciation of Circe?

    Just curious how you pronounce Circe. Also wonder if it sounds like it is pronounced differently depending on your accent?
    Anxiously awaiting the arrival of Luther's little brother November 2015!
    Currently loving: Magnus, Tiberius, Gregor, Corvus and Ulric.

    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.
