    Just found this Scottish variation of Christine on behindthename.com -- anyone know how it's pronounced?

    Thanks!

    What I'm finding online so far is either:

    care-is-TYOH-nah
    care-is-CHEE-nah
    or
    care-is-TEE-nah...

    Do we have any Scottish speakers on the boards?

    P.S. Apparently there is a Scottish folk song titled Cairistiona, and from listening to it, it sounds like chris-TEE-uh-nah or cares-TEE-uh-nah.
