Goon-ter vs. Gun-ther

Hello, we’re pregnant with our first son. We’ve chosen to name him Gunther, but we’re having trouble deciding on the pronounciation. I know it’s supposed to be pronounced Goon-ter (which we love), but we also love the pronounciation Gun-ther. We live in the States, so it’s most likely going to be pronounced Gun-ther by people, but I have no problem correcting others if we decide on the Goon-ter pronounciation. Which do you prefer? Thanks!!

Genie's Mailbag

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.
