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!!

I think he will be happier with his name if you pronounce it Gun-ther.

I’ve never in my life heard it pronounced Goon-ter, it’s Gun-ther.

It’s German, so yes PP, it’s usually pronounced Goon-ter, but either works. Especially if it’s being used in the States.
