    @corajsb: Apparently the way I would pronounce some of your names isn't correct, but I thought it might be helpful to know how other people might try to pronounce them upon first glance, if you're considering them for children.

    Dashiell -- dash-ee-ull
    Xanthe -- zanth (silent e)
    Sloane -- slown

    Here's another one for you all- I seem to have a lot, but I think the sounds of a name is just as important as the spelling!

    Thisbe? Do you pronounce the 'e' at the end?

    My great aunt is named Imogen and pronounces it "Im-oh-gene." All of her sisters also have the "EEN" sound at the end: Christine, Kathlene, Justine and Imogen.

    All Greek names that end in E has the EE sound at the end.

    Thisbe = thiz-bee
