How interesting! The main Signe I have known was Swedish; I hope we weren't pronouncing her name wrong for all those years...

That might be the US pronunciation, but the Swedish way is Sing-neh; Danes say more like See-neh.

I love the name Signe, but it's strictly a Guilty Pleasure name for me, since I am not Scandinavian at all and I have a hard time pronouncing it right! The meaning of Signe is so positive and wonderful. I'd save it for a fictional character of mine.

SimoneKadele Says:


It's pronounced something like SING-neh, though I suppose you could anglicize it to rhyme with Sydney- SIG-nee. I found this on the back of an old family portrait, and I love it.

Catastroffy Says:


This is pronounced "sig-nuh". I have known several people with the name.
