Hi everybody,

I am 25 weeks pregnant and looking for an international name for my baby girl. What me and my husband considered about name is to be pronounced correctly in most country specially Sweden as we are resident of Svarige (sorry to not right in Swedish as my Swedish is not that much good rolleyes.gif )

What we choose is " Chloe " - Chlo? is the correct spelling - which is an international name but I have no idea how Swedish pronounce it.
Please help us if you know the pronunciation.

Thanks

it wouldn't translate to a swedish name, swedes would try to pronounce it in the english way.

Either that or just as Klow, according to my sambo. He said though that the younger generations (or 60 years and down, everyone that speaks English) would pronounce it as the english name, but the older ones might use the Klaw variant.

Of course they do. My husband's name is 'John', his mother is 'Jane', both are pronounced differently in Sweden to the UK. Mine is a version of 'Lorraine' but Swedes take some getting used to it, often pronouncing it 'Loreen' instead.
