    OK, I googled and found a Russian pronunciation guide, their prn is very similar to mine; here are the cyrillic letters, the alphabet and Zenoviy ends in cyrillic letter "Й"(NOT И), you can find the symbol and maybe listening to prn(audio) will help you understand what I mean by "ih".
    Link is http://listen2russian.com/lesson01/a/. If you are interested in full name, it's Зеновий/Зиновий in cyrillic.
    Sorry for being stupid and not able to explain correctly, I hope you aren't mad at me.
    So more like.. veh-ee? haha I'm not mad, I just want to figure it out because the name LOOKS awesome. When I'm saying it it's coming out as Zehn-oh-veh-ih... which might be correct because of my accent (apparently I have a 'Seattle' accent. Bag and beg sound the same when I say them, if that has any relevance at all) haha I feel like a little kid who doesn't know how to use a zipper...

    @chrisco, so like Jay Coby? I'm so used to Jacob it's hard to say it that way, haha. I've had Jacoby on my list, but I always just said it JAY-cuh-bee. I've also heard Jack-uh-bee, which I like.

    @saracita, I LOVE behindthename. I have issues because every time I go there I just click links to other names endlessly... like wikipedia...

    @ciottolo, I hadn't thought of that... phbt. Ruins a perfectly awesome name! I like it because it combines two meaningful names for me, Everett and Gerard. Oh twell...

    Does anyone have any incredibly obscure names? I keep seeing the same ones over and over, and I feel like there MUST be more out there!
    I'm not feeling incredibly profound at the moment. Check back later.
