Hypatia vs. Famke

I really love the name Hypatia (Ee-pah-shah) for our daughter. I think it would be lucky to name her after such a role model. Its not my husband’s favorite of our list but he loves it too, his favorite is Famke. We are stuck on pronounciation, the correct way is Fahm-key but most of the people around us see it and say it Fahm-kuh depite correction and its growing on us, can using the pronounciation Fahm-kuh make us look ridiculous since it technically is not the correct way to pronounce it? We would like opinions on each, if you dont like it thats fine but please say why, since its really between these two. Suggestions welcome. Thanks

Genie's Mailbag

Carina in Canada
Dear Genie, I need you to help me find a Greek name for a girl. I've already used Theodore and Sebastian for her siblings. But every other Greek girl's name I see is either too pretentious, hard to pronounce, or just too popular now. The only name I can picture using is Caroline, but it's not Greek!
Baby Name Genie:
The Greeks would name her Charissa Zoe. Then, they would stuff her in a wooden horse and give her to the Trojans. So, my advice would be to borrow the name but not the rest of their tactics.
