How do you pronounce Chrysostom?

I've heard it said like: "kris-sis-tum" and also "kris-SOS-tum" with the second syllable stressed. What is the right pronunciation?

Also, I've been reading St. John Chrysostom's homilies on the Acts of the Apostles. I was thinking of collecting together the quotes from the homilies that I really like and saving them for future reference. Would anyone be interested if I posted Chrysostom's Quotables here as I found them?

It's Χρυσόστομος in Greek, if that helps. In which case, it would be kri-SOS-tom. The Latins, of course, wrote it Chrysostomus, draw your own conclusions about what that would cause the English to be. Either works, really, but pedants like the more pedantic one.

I know three ways.
  • KRI-zus-tum
  • kri-ZOSS-tum
  • kri-ZOS-toe-mos
I believe that they are all legit.

Thanks for the help.

"Wherever the Holy Spirit finds a man of clay, He turns him into a man of gold." -St. John Chrysostom

This is my favorite quote so far. I'll share others as I find them.

The first letter is more of an H than a C or K. So Hree-so-sto-mos. In English is where it has the C or K sound.

Troparion to St. Nikolai (Kasatkin) the enlightener of Japan (日本の聖ニコライ)

O Holy Saint Nikolai The enlightener of Japan, You share a dignity and the throne of the Apostles; you are a wise and faithful servant of Christ, A temple chosen by the Divine Spirit, A vessel overflowing with the love of Christ. O hierarch equal to the Apostles, Pray to the Life-Creating Trinity For all your flock and for the whole world.

I pronounce the saint's name "Chry-sis-tom". I've also seen it as a surname, which I pronounce however the person wants me to.
