    I like Caroline but not in the way you are pronouncing it.

    I also like Henrietta.

    No one will pronounce Caroline like that, I instantly think of Caroline Kennedy and the Neil Diamond classic “Sweet Caroline”. However, I’m half Hispanic so I would pronounce Carolina that way… think of fashion designer Carolina Herrera.

    Caroline is my favorite, but also like the previous commenters said, not the way you are pronouncing it, with that spelling. Honestly, she’s going to have to correct people so many times, she will be so frustrated. I would if people messed up my name constantly!! Maybe change the spelling a bit so that it looks more like how you want it? The way you are pronouncing it is actually beautiful! but not with that spelling.

     

    Good luck!

    I like your Caroline, Violetta, and Helene, however based on your pronouciations, I would go Helene hands down.

    I don’t think most people are going to use the pronunciation you want with those spellings.

    Would Henrietta be pronounced like “Henry-etta”? If so that’s my vote because of your choices its the only one I think people would pronounce the way you want them to

    Those pronunciations are the Austrian pronunciations — I think she’s saying that the girl’s name would be pronounced 2 different ways — the normal American way when in the US, and the Austrian way when in Austria. Right?

    OP, do you live in Austria? Or the US? Why not pick a spelling that would be pronouced the sane way in both countries, e.g. Carolina?

    I totally understand. My name gets pronounced differently when I travel and I enjoy that.
