    Question How do you pronounce Leonie?

    I discovered the name Leonie not to long ago, but I don't know how to pronounce it. Is it:

    Lay-oh-nee
    Lee-oh-nee
    Lee-on-ee

    I've been pronouncing it Lay-oh-knee and I think that sounds really pretty, but I don't know if that's right. How do you all pronounce it?

    Thanks for your help!

    I would pronounce it lee-OH-knee. However, I do not actually know if that is correct.

    My daughter is Lee-oh-nee, but it gets pronounced Lay-oh-nee a lot. Either is lovely imo.
