    I've only heard it as 'bri-SAY-iss', which is how it's pronounced in the movie. The 1st syllable is 'bri' like brick and the last syllable is 'iss' like kiss

    Here's a thread with the proper pronunciations of Greek names

    Great name! So much history. It's still relatively uncommon and I would love to meet someone with the name.

    Personally I think its too much of a tongue twister, but it is pretty cool. Its history is really cool, though, I can see why you like it!

    I'd be excited to meet a Briseis, but I don't care for the name myself. When we discussed it in English class, my teacher prn. the name brye-see-iss which I found unattractive. In addition, the character is such an object that I find it depressing. It doesn't seem like a great namesake to me. But I admire its uniqueness, anyway.

    I find it very beautiful. It's been one of my favourites since I was little.
