I didn't have too many problems with most of the names because I'd actually heard some, like Carlisle and Siobahn, before and I was a good guesser. I did mess up Aro--pronouncing it Arrow and Quileute--pronouncing it Kwee-loot. I'm glad that that was cleared up. I think that Nahuel is pronounced Na-oo-el--at least in Spanish--the h is silent. I've really enjoyed reading the postings--some of which really made me laugh--Resume--LOL.

La Tua Cantante, the only thing hard about this is getting down the actual diction that the T's aren't hard T's. They're soft. It's hard to explain. If you're a musician you might understand.

One that I'm kind of curious on is Renata. Is it supposed to just be like "Reh-nahh-ta" or is there something I'm missing there?

And I always say Leah as Lee-uh, and now that I've heard the lovely Lexicon ladies say Lay-uh, I'm curious how it's supposed to be.

I was curious on Renata too. I always imagined it to be "Rhe-na-ta" but my friend says "Ren-et-ter" Which is right/closest?

I've always pronounced Leah "Lee-uh" I've never met anybody called Leah when you pronouce it as "Lay-uh." Just that paticular persons decision to have their name said like, that prehaps? I would imagine SM would want it pronounced "Lee-uh"

I read through the first 7 pages and gave up, so forgive me if this has already been asked....

How do you pronounce Volterra? It never occured to me that I could be saying it wrong until my friend asked me how to say it, and she seemed pretty confused. Now I'm doubting myself! :lol:

Thanks so much! :D

That's similar to how I was saying it, but more like "terra" and not "teera"

Yours sounds more italian though, so I'm sure you're right :lol:

Isn't that how you pronounce an arrow anyway, with the sound like in father? (Or is this just my British accent?)


I never thought of it like that, I always pronounced it Aro -like arrow- I'll have to correct myself. lol. ;)
