    As-strid. I didn't know there was another pronunciation, but I rarely say Ah for any name.

    As-strid. I've never heard it pronounced it differently. I'm in Australia so maybe that makes a difference?

    I've heard 'ah-stree' is the correct pronunciation? I've tried to remedy my own accordingly.
