    How do you pronounce Olave?

    We are getting a new puppy to add to our family. We have a male dog named Baden-Powell after Robert Baden-Powell, the founder of the scouting movement. We thought it would be cute if we named our new girl after his wife Olave. I think she was born in England. I've heard it pronounced Olive, but not sure if that is right. Any ideas?

    Olav/Olaf is a MALE Scandinavian name pronounced "O-lahf". In England, Olave is pronounced like Olive.
    All the best,
    Mischa.

    Just a thought...you could always name her after Juliet Gordon Low, the founder of the girl scouts!
