: this may sound kind of stupid, but i really need to know the correct pronounciation of Baklava. i am dong an english project on greek foods and it might help my grade if i can pronounce the word right. this you dont have to answer, but is there a greek name for chrissy or christina?? if so, does anyone have a clue what it might mean? thank you all so much for reading this and thank you even more if you answer either or both of my questons!
The pronunciation of "baklava" is as it's spelt. However I'll add that you should pronounce the 'a' like the 'u' in "buck".
There is a greek equivalent for the name of "Christina". It is exactly as it is in english but the "Ch" is pronounced as in the word "loch". In greek it is: Χριστίνα. (capitals: ΧΡΙΣΤΙΝΑ).
"Christina" is a derivation from "Christ" just as the Greek male version of "Christos" is. I don't think there is any other meaning apart from that.
