I've already got over 200 signatures -- I would love even more!!! Spread the word!! Get your fellow Twilighters to sign and I will mail this onto Stephenie!

Go show her some LOVE!!

This is not the place to post this. I would suggest either the 'Flight to Phoenix' forum, or the 'In the Twilight Zone' section. You may have to request a thread for it.

HOLY COW! 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 :oops: Lol

By the way, isn't Caius an amazingly cool name? I LOVE the name, not much of a Cauis fan though :?

I pronounced Carlisle's name the same way, well in my head anyway, and I don't know, CAR-lyle is just not the same for me lol. I'll call him what I want in my head.

I can't pronounce Didyme.

Any suggestions as to how it should be pronounced?

I pretty much had all the pronounciations right except for Laurent and I didn't realize I was saying it wrong until I listed to the audio book. I was saying it as Lore int. Silly me :)

Wow, I've been pronouncing so many things wrong!

Although I can't believe so many people didn't know how to pronounce Siobhan, but I guess I was used to it because I had a friend called Siobhan in primary school.

Quil-yute and Ah-ro... oops.

Half my friends are like: How is this pronounced... Carlizzle? I'm like um no it's Carlile, pretend thers no 's'. I thought Carlisle was a fairly well known name?

Not to mention some of the crazy names! I'm so glad this was posted :D

I pronounce Laurent how it's spelt. I know it's meant to be the French way (I take French) but I sound like an idiot.
And Carlisle is an English name and is Car-Lyle because of how we (English people) pronounce (for example) aisle or island.
And I feel like a total retard for the Siobhan thing. I had no idea on that one.
Also, is Didyme "Di-die-mee" or "Di-die-may" or neither?

My friend won't stop saying "Quillet". Hmph.

Um, me too. You can spell it "Lee" or "Leah", but still pronounce it the same way. Although, I'm sure you could pronouce "Leah" as lay-uh.
