    Lysander

    Quick question... Is Lysander only pronounced like Lice-ander or can it be liss-ander (Which sounds a lot nicer to me than Lice)!

    I say LIE-sander.. not exactly LICE-ander. I linger a bit on the "lie." The sound of LIE is more "lahy," whereas LICE is more "luhy." It's an open sound. I don't think of lice. Lovely name.

    Yeah, I say lie-sander. Or lyyyyye-sander, maybe.

    liss-ander is not attractive to me.

    when I look at Lysander, I hear liss-ander. I like it much more than Lie-sander too.
