It's a french girl's name.
What do you think..?

How do you pronounce it?

claudib Sun 14-Sep-08 04:39:45

mmm not sure.. i might say Zay- zee but i would guess the French say Zeh-zee

why do you like a name that you don't know how to pronounce??? Surely partly of what we like about a nmae is the way it sounds....

I think it's quite pretty but sounds a bit like a nick-name for something else to me?
I guess it would be 'Zay-Zee'?
A bit like Sadie too I think....or maybe not!

i think its like zazu - the parrot from the lion king

i would pronounce it Zay-zee. i am just saying that the French would pronounce it slightly different in their own accent. It's from the book by Raymond Queneau "Zazie dans le Metro". (Also a 60's film by Louis Malle -i'd recommend em both by the way!)

I went to school with a Zazie, it's pronounced Za-zee.

I think 'dans la metro'

sorry to be pedantic, but it's definitely le metro.

Or did you mean something else?

Isn't Zazie a French singer? I didn't think that was her real name.

dd2 is called Zara which often morphs into Zah-zee for short
