We are thinking of Danika or Danica for a girls name
Just wanted to get some help with understanding how each spelling is pronounced, and whether there are different cultural origins for the variations?
I *think* we want to pronounce it da-nee-ka (dah-knee-ka?) - I'm not very good with reading/writing the way to pronounce names!
There's so many rubbish name sites out there, I'm not sure where to look for info!

I'd pronounce it the same way from Czech

For me Danica is [dah-NIT-sah]. I taught several in my time who hailed from Serbia and Croatia. I'm no expert though.
Danika for me is [DAN-i-kah]. I have heard the rendition with the 'knee' and it does not appeal.
