    Isolde: realistic pronunciation expectations?

    How would Isolde end up being pronounced in the US?

    Also, should "is old" be a worry point?

    I think most people would pronounce it like "is old." But compared to the teasing potential of other names, I really wouldn't worry about "is old."

    Some might say it a "i sold"

    I would say it as "ee sold" is that right? (disclaimer: I took French in college so if I am guessing right, it's not totally by chance...if I'm not, well, I didn't say I speak French!)
