Thread: Thoughts on Dune?
June 20th, 2013 04:12 PM #6
I pronounce it "Doon", which rhymes with June.
I don't consider Dune to be a person name but a mound of sand. Dunes are common around here so that's automatically what I think of. I'd never consider it because of this (there are other reasons too) but it would work better as a first name than as a middle name.
Have you considered Rune?** The opinions expressed above are not meant to be reflective of Nameberry as a whole but are my opinion and mine alone. **

I think it has a really odd sound that I'm not used to hearing in a name. I'd double guess hearing it as "doom" or "dunce." There are better sounding names out there...

I just think, 'Arrakis, Dune, home of the spice.' But that's just a sci-fi nerd thing, and even then most people who like that stuff would probably think it was cool. Other than that, I don't mind it.
