    Online Name Pronunciation

    I was wondering if anyone knew of a site where they had pronunciations of names that you can listen to. I have a very limited knowledge of names, especially how to say them. Some sites have written pronunciations which are very helpful, but I would love it if anyone knew of a site where they had recordings.

    I tried finding one myself, because I wasn't sure on Calliope. I found this site, and looked up Calliope. The recording was pretty much the scariest voice I have ever heard. I am literally going to have nightmares with a lady whispering Calliope in my ear, before she stabs me or something else horrifying. :/

    So, any site suggestions that won't scar me?
    And if there aren't any does, anyone think this might be a good idea for Nameberry in the future?

    I was going to suggest www.forvo.com as well!

    www.behindthename.com has a lot of pronunciations listed with their names, too. They're not spoken though.
