    Some books of baby names have the pronunciations in them. Check your local library or perhaps an online bookstore for books about "What to Name Your New Baby."

    names are alwayes creat confusion for every body, but the best way is to know the pronunce of the name from the person himself, because he is the most one who know how to pronunce his name.

    hope you find the correct answer

    I would like to meet with Shakespeare, Hawthorne, Chaucer or others to ask about their name's pronunciation. That's one of my dreams!!!!!
