Quoting Amy {OneGirl, TwoBoys}:" Persephone is the 'normal' way"

Ok that's what I thought. And I agree that it and Penelope sound too matchy.

I think of a horse when I hear it lol. I read a book where someone had a horse named Persephone.

Besides this, up untill about 2 months ago I thought it was pronounced Per-uh-phone - which many people think it's pronounced. I wouldnt want a name knowing someone will prob mispronounce it.

<3 Their names. Especially Feeonah's, that is just sweet.



But I think Penelope and Persephone might be a bit close. Too bad, because I think that Feeonah and Persephone might actually work together, even thought I'm not overly fond of Persephone.

There are a lot of names that can get mispronounced easily and are still good names. My baby's name is Isla and it's been mispronounced a few times but I still love it and wouldn't change it.

Is-la. They don't think the s is silent. I did a poll before I had her to see how many people would pronounce it right, most people did. I figure I loved the name enough to go ahead and name her that haha. And thanks :)
