    Sunniva

    I have been seeing Sunniva in a few places lately and it's really caught my attention.

    How do you pronounce it? I tried listening to it on forvo (http://www.forvo.com/word/sunniva/#no), and I think it sounds more like a theater song than someone saying a name. I pronounce it sun-EE-va, but that doesn't sound anything like the forvo pronounciation.

    Would you pronounce it sun-EE-va, or like soon-ih-va?

    What middle names would you pair with it?

    SUNN-ih-vah or something like that. Emphasis on the first syllable.
