Heathcote vs. Pronunciation

I posted this yesterday, just reposting to get more answers, thanks. I saw this name on a baby name website and am wondering how to pronounce it and I can’t really find a clear answer. Is the Heath part pronounced like heth (Heather) or heath (Heathcliff)? And is the Cote part pronounced cut, kit, or coat? I’ve gotten different answers, mostly heth-kit and heath-coat. What do you think?
Which baby name is best?

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.
