Is it Ko-ray? Or Kaw-ray? Kor-ri?
I could go on, but I'll just embarrass myself further. hahah


I've always pronounced that like Cow-ray.

It's gonna be a while before I switch from See-oh-bahn to Shiv-awn. D=

I say Lay-ah because I'm a huge Star Wars fan (even though Princess Leia is spelled differently) and I know a Lay-ah with that spelling as well. However, now that I've been around my friends so much, I say Lee-ah now because I hear them say it that way all the time.

See I've never had a problem with her name because my name is Leah, I hate being called Lay-ah, it's one of my biggest pet peeves.

I always had a hard time with the roman's names. and the the Amazon women's name. and I also Call Reneseme (sp) Resume as well. :-) or Nessie.

I pronounce...

Kaure cow-ray (actually more of an Kah-oo squished together in one syllable fast)
Huilen wee-len (actually more of an oo-wee squished together in one syllable fast)
Nahuel nah-oo-ehl (though the last two oo-ehl are more like one syllable than two)

The "h" is not pronounced (silent letter) in Spanish or Portuguese, so this is how I pronounce them.

Thank you, thank you for the Siobhan!!! That one tripped me up every time!

Ok thank you for clarifying Siobhan!!!
I actually thought it See-oh-bin because back in my country we have that name and it's pronounced that way. That's where the Arabic kicked in with me.
And for Leah??? I always thought it was Lay-ah and not Lee-ah
I've had many friends who pronounced and spelled their name that way. But Lee-ah wasn't very common to me.

Hope <3

I was one of the many clueless who pronounced Siobhan like See-Oh-Bon. I still say it that way in my head even though I know it's wrong! Shiv-awn is going to take time to get used to.

I also pronouned Aro like "arrow." To answer the Brit who thought Arrow is normally pronounced like Aro anyway, here in America we don't. We pronounce "Arrow" like we do "Air", not "Ar" like a pirate. :) I've been saying Arrow in my head so much as well, this will take time to get used to Arrrro. Hah. Now I keep picturing Aro as a pirate. A bloodsucking, red-eyed pirate. What a scary sight. Far cry from good ol' Jack Sparrow, that's for sure :!:

Getting a little off topic now, just wanted to comment that yet another person was clueless about some of the names in SM's books. Though I'm proud to say I DID know how to pronounce Carlise, Esme, and Rosalie's names. I'm proud of that fact, at least. Heh. :geek:
