    I thought Nye-ahm. And will continue to do so, ha. I like my semi-phonetic pronunciations.
    I'm not feeling incredibly profound at the moment. Check back later.

    I know it's pronounced NEEV but I agree with this! I tend to pronounce Caoimhe as "Cammie" the first time I read it, too.

    Think I'll stick with it then. I guess it's rarely going to be spoken after all, and anyway I didn't know how to say Hermione before the first Harry Potter film came out, so I'm sure I read the first couple of books with a different pronunciation in my head and it never did any harm. If people know it's Neeve they'll say Neeve, if they think it's Nee-amh or Ny-amh so be it, or they'll look it up.

    I would use it no matter what.

    From looking at it, I would think Neem, but as a name lover I know it's Neeve.
