- Personal experiences with the name Sverre: | Edit
I have grown up with the name Sver, pronounced "svair". It's generally a lot easier for English-speaking people to pronounce and say.
The American are inclined to pronounce Sverre like "svair-ee" which, yes, rhymes with "ferry". This is in reality much closer to the Icelandic version of the name: Sverri.
I named my son Sverre for my morfar. When I explain the pronunciation, I say rhymes with Sara with a 'SV' & roll the Rs like in Spanish.
