Xenia

Noob question. How do you pronounce Xenia? I have always said Zenia but the LFS guy said something totally different.

Hello,

I am not a native speeker but we pronounce the X like "gs" - so "gsenia".

It is always funny and somethimes not easy to listen to english speaking referees coming from US (like A. Calfo, S. Michael, J. Sprung...) and mentioning latin names of fishes or corals - as the latin pronounciation is totally different....

regards

Markus
