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

Terra in Oklahoma
It's our first child, and she's a girl. Our last name is Watson. I was going for Suzanna Adelle for a while, but grew not to like it. I've also liked the names Skyler Dean and Stormy Kay in the past, but decided against them. Is there any way you can help?
Baby Name Genie:
With names like Skyler and Stormy, I’m seeing a definite meteorological theme here. Not to rain on your parade, but the forecast shows a different name for your daughter. Name her Sadie Joy for a baby girl with a sunny disposition.
