    Cressida prn.?

    How do you pronounce Cressida? I looked at the pronunciation guide on its name page, but am still not sure. Cress-EYE-da? Cress-ID-a, where "id" rhymes with "did"? Something else entirely?

    I think Cress-eye-da is very pretty, but I don't know if that's actually how you say it.

    Thanks,
    LL

    I've only heard it pronounced this way. It's a beautiful name.

    I've always said krə-SID-ah, but hearing Cressida Bonus in the media recently I think it's more like KRESS-ih-dah as mentioned above. It's only a teeny-tiny emphasis change though.

    I've never heard kress-EYE-dah and I don't think it's a legitimate pn (correct me if I'm wrong, somebody!). I think it's pretty though. I heard Alida recently pronounced ə-LYE-dah which I thought was gorgeous.

    I say KRESS-ih-duh, which I really like. It's a lovely name with a cool meaning.
