I started doing medieval and Renaissance reenactment in my mid teens and am still fairly active so a lot of the names mentioned so far I know at least one of 🙂 (Elizabeth is also my middle name) I would pronounce it Belsante BEL-sant-ay (it almost looks like medieval French for “good health” sante is health)
