The Final E Is Not Silent

Most people today know that the final e in such popular Greek names for girls as Penelope, Chloe, Zoe, Phoebe, and Daphne is not silent. We can thank Harry Potter's Hermione for making all of us aware that the e ending in Greek names is pronounced as ee. That sound has been represented in English by a series of different spellings. At the turn of the 20th century, it was ie -- Lillie, Fannie. Y was often used in the 1950s, when Kathy and Patty reigned, but then i came to the fore in the 1960s, when President LBJ's daughter changed the spelling of her name to Luci. Today, there are lots of kree8tif spellings that represent that final ee sound, from ey to eigh to, well, ee. Which only makes the softness of that final e more appealing. Here, some other baby girl names that end with an e that may whisper, but is not silent.
