    Pronounce these two

    Peregrine & Romilly
    Tell me how you pronounce them and what country you are from (or how people in your country pronounce it).
    Thanks berries!

    PE-re-green and RO-mil-lee is how I would pronounce these two!
    I'm from Germany and here Peregrine doesn't really exist as a name. Romilly would be the same as in English, with the 'R' sound being different and the 'o' being a bit longer.

    PE-re-grin and Ro-mi-lee (with a short O sound)
    I am from England but if you love the names then your child would verbalise the name so people would know how you say it X

    I'm from Canada and I pronounce these two names in the following manner.

    Peregrine = "PEAR-ih-grin" (never green)
    Romilly = "RAHM-ih-lee" (the French pronunciation is different from the English)

    This might be totally wrong, but I pronounce:
    Peregrine as PEAR-uh-grine, and
    Romilly as ROM-ill-ee
