This comment surprised me as my MIL's name is Brooke Cherith
Hi, I'm a real live Cherith - I was given this name in 1959 when unusual names weren't commom - I grew up surrounded by Sue's, Cathy's, Nancy's and Carol's...that said, I do think there is some truth to the idea that we live up to our names - I have had a wonderful life and can proudly say that I'm intelligent, accomplished and well-rounded. My niece, also named Cherith is the same - but she's a Tai Kwan Do Master and I'm not (that means she can kick some serious butt)! Interestingly also is that there is a Cherith Harrison living in Scotland who is a graphic designer. All three Cherith's that I know well are creative!
No one seems to have weighed in on the pronunciation - it's Ker ith for me with a "hard c" sound...it makes for a lot of confusion so I would say that the name is not for the shy or faint hearted. And P.S. - no one ever, ever remembers your name - I've known people for months before they get it right! Oh well, something to consider if you're considering the name Cherith.
