Just recently discovered the names Linnea and Davina, think they're both great but I'm not sure of the proper pronunciations and I'm pretty sure I've been saying them wrong in my mind
How is Linnea pronounced? I've been saying it as 'lyn-ee-a' but I think that might be wrong, would it be acceptable even if it's not the traditional pronunciation?
How is Davina pronounced? I've been going with 'dav-een-a' but again I'm not sure
Any suggestions names with a similar vibe to these two?
What middle names would you use for each (just for fun)?Number 1 Aunty to one adorable ray of sunshine Rosalee Jillian 'Rosie'/'Roe'
Cousin & Godmother to the delightful Erica Marisol 'Eri'/'Ricki'
Cousin to Munchkin & Monkey a.k.a Luciana Celeste 'Lucy'/'C.C' & Melinda Esther 'Lindy'/'Mel'
& Godmother to Sadie Bryn 'Bean' & soon to be involved in another little princess' life!

As stated above, Linnea can be pronounced both as "Lin-AY-uh" and "LIN-ee-uh." I lean towards the former pronunciation but really like them both. (Actually, after reading what vch23 said about the word 'linear', I definitely like the first one more.)
As for Davina, I believe you are correct in Dav-EE-nuh.
For me, I would probably go with something like Linnea Lark and Davina Skye. Because, lately, I am loving fun middles.
