    Pronounce Kirste?

    I've been pronouncing it almost like cursed, somewhere between that and Keerst. I'm not sure if the E at the end is pronounced, making it Kirsta,or if leaving it off is correct as well. Thoughts?
    I'm not feeling incredibly profound at the moment. Check back later.

    It looks Germanic, so I would assume the "e" on the end is pronounced (like Bettine, Christiane, Sabine, etc., all of which end in the "uh" sound in German).

    I would say KEER-stuh or KER-stuh, but leaning towards the first pronunciation.
