It's pronounced shi-von? Well now don't I just feel like an idiot.
I bugged my friend for saying Carlisle ,Car-liss-le, and I have been walking around saying Siobahn, Seye-oh-bhan
By the way, isn't Caius an amazingly cool name? I LOVE the name, not much of a Cauis fan though
I pronounced Carlisle like that too (or Car-lill sometimes LOL) until I read the right pronunciation here. And Siobahn I just sayed Siowhatever in my mind and never even tried to figure out how to pronounce it or say it out loud.
Caius is the way Roman "goverment" used to identify themselves (or so I read somewhere) ie. Caius Julius Ceasar
Aro and other Italian names were easy for me because I speak Spanish and in Spanish words are pronounced the same way they are written and the same is for some words in Portuguese and Italian. Following the same line, Volturi is pronounced Vohl-too-ree.
PS. I thought the only word I say with an English accent was can't
but I pronounce arrow Ah-row, I have no idea where I heard it pronounced like that, maybe in some US accents they say it like that... or maybe I was English on my past live lol.
