    From what I understand, Dashiell is dash-ell but I might be wrong.

    As someone who speaks Greek and is Greek, Xanthe is ZAN-thee

    Sloane is like slow with an N at the end -- slown

    @dantea I agree with all those pronunciations.

    How about this one: I'm not a huge fan of the name, but do you pronounce the name Cherry like the fruit, of like the famous Franki Valli song (Sherry)? I've heard it both ways

    Wilhelmina - I pronounce it willa-mee-nah.
    Imogen - IM-uh-jen

    Dashiell - DASH-ull (like lull without the first 'l')
    Xanthe - ZAN-thee
    Sloane - slow-n (but all one syllable... when I see slown, I want to say it differently)

    Cherry - I'd pronounce it like the fruit unless told otherwise.
    Current favorites:
    Cora . Louisa . Lydia . Mary
