    Possible pronunciation problems in the future for Sverre?

    I love, love Scandinavian names. Sverre has been a favorite for a while, but any time I bring it up, no one seems to know how to pronounce it. It's obviously not very familiar in the US. So, would a future Sverre born in America end up correcting everyone he meets? How do you pronounce the name? (The Scandinavian way kind of rhymes with Sarah, but you sort of roll the R's.)

     
     
     
     
     
    I fancy these: Twila Posey, Odette Francesca, Orlaith Glimmer, Fianna Ruby, Indie Nell
                               
    Ouen Amos, Cillian Ambrose, Oswin Maverick, Casimir Orlando, Oscar Phineas

    Honestly, I would have NO idea how to pronounce it. I would probably guess something along the lines of Suh-vair-uh. I vacillated between that and Severe-uh or Suh-vair.

    Yeah, honestly I have no idea how to pronounce this name. I think I'd guess something like Severe.

    I'd say svair-rah. I do think it would cause some problems because people would try to put random vowels in front of the v, but I feel like it wouldn't be too hard for people to learn.
