I have trouble with the Amazon vamps names. Zafrina, Senna, and Kachiri Still do. I think Zafrina is Za-free-na.
Senna is like zee-na. But i have no idea how to pronounce Kachiri. But am I right about the other two?
Next I want to make sure I am saying Kebi right. Is it Keh-bee?
And is Makenna pronounced with a long e or a sound like in mEgan?

Also the different type of vampires. When Bella is looking on the internet about the types of vamps in vampires a-z. I need those.

Thanks

I always figured that Kachiri was pronounced Kah-sheer-ree. Makenna is pronounced with a long e.

ok i kind of skimmed through some of the pages, and these are how I have been pronouncing the names:

Siobhan= shi-VOHN (short i as in "win")--> I actually know someone named Siobhan lol
Nahuel= na-HOO-ull --> just guessing
La Tua Cantante= La TOO-ah can-TAHN-tay --> I am Italian, so I know lol
Kachiri= kuh-CHEER-ee --> again, just the way I have been saying it, just my guess
Zafrina= za-FREE-nah --> guessing
Senna= SE-nah (short E as in "eggs")--> guessing

I think Kachiri will pronounce like in Japan :o Ka-chi-ri .

I have a problem with Carlisle too , At first I pronounced it Car-lis ( "lis" like "list" ) but after the Twilight Movie , Alice said "Car-lis" , I happy that I'm a bit right ...

I always pronounced Carlisle Car-lis-lay (short i) Until I saw the movie, where it's pronounced Car-lile. And I just pronounced Aro with a long a.

I always thought of Siobhan being pronounced as "Sho-ban" because my dad, whose nanny was from Ireland has a friend named Siobhan and has always called her "Sho-ban". Also, I know for a fact that it means "God Is Gracious". Actually it is pronounced "Shih-VON" or "Shih-WAN." Sorry, I get confused, and maybe I was just hearing things with the friend's name. And it is a form of Joan.
Also, my friend ruined Renee, Esme, Renesmee, Emmett, Rosalie, and Carlisle for me. In order, she says: Rai-ny, Ezz-mee, Ren-us-mee, Emmelt (she misread it once and never got over it), Ross-uh-ly, and Car-lizz-le. :evil:

I actually said most things right. That surprised me alot :lol:

I KNEW Siobann was pronounced Shi-van but is still pronounced it wrong in my head, Sie o ban is how i say it in my head for some reason.

and Quilette I pronounced horribly wrong, and I still don't know how my brain came up with the pronunciation I was using. Quay loot was how i pronounced it lol

Carlise I had right, and Esme, I pronounced Esmayee I used both the long a and the long e sound when pronouncing it, which I think is how its described as right. Aro I actually thought Ahrow and I don't remember how my brain formatted the Amazon names when I read the book, but I think they were mostly phonetically or in a way that seemed to sound right.

I got most of them right,and Aro is a Maori word too so I know how to pronounce his name! :D
But I heard Renesmee being called Ree-nez-me (as in the word me) which I thought was strange because Bella said Ruh-nez-may or somehting like that in Breaking Dawn.
With Nahuel I always said 'Nah-hwell' for some reason, sort of rolling it around.
Another thing I got wrong was Quil's last name, Ateara. I've been saying it 'Ah-ta-ray-a' :lol:
