How do you pronounce it please?
I am not considering it as a baby name.
I always wondered how you pronounced it.

I didn't think it was going to be She- her- a -zayd. grin
I've never heard it pronounced. I've just seen it written down and wondered. Seems very hard to pronounce.

I'd say She-he-ra-zad

She - like start of Shed
He - like start of Help

Not one you'd thank your parents for when you're learning to write your name at school

In English, the final syllable ends in 'zahrde' (Sheh-hair-reh-zahrde). Try this link again:

Pronunciation will of course be different in different cultures.
