    British Berries - Pronounce this name for me please!

    I have loved the name Amarantha since I first discovered it. The look, the meaning, the poetic pedigree--everything. But, I'm not sure how to pronounce it. Since Richard Lovelace, who immortalized the name in his poem "Song to Amarantha, that she would Dishevel her Hair" http://www.poetryfoundation.org/poem/173922, was English, I thought I should ask any of you berries from England to help me out. How would you pronounce "Amarantha"? Thanks! ~ a confused American

    pet peeves: nicknames as given names; unconventional spellings; masculine names on girls
    not-so-guilty pleasures: five-syllable girls' names; virtue and nature names; over-the-top antique names for boys
    (if i repeat name suggestions in a thread, it's because i like them! no apologies here for repeats of great names! )
