So I had done a bit of Google research, and Nahuel is pronounce naw-WEL. No idea for Huilen, though. Tried to research that name, and I just got a list of websites where people were asking about her name, but nobody knew xP

idk if it's the right way or not, but I always think Huilen is pronounced wh-ay-len...with the first H sounding like how stewie froom family guy says whip, as in cool whip (that scene is greatness!) but i'm really weird...everyone on this board thought siobhan was See-o-ban, but I thought it was Sci-o-ban.....so idk

Well going with what you found for Nahuel, it stands to reason that Huilen could be pronounced wee-LEN.

i never really had a problem with much of the pronounciation.
i was confused about quileute, until it said on SMeyers website how to say it.
but how do you pronounce sam's last name?
is it you-ley, oo-lay, oo-ley, you-lay (i have an english accent so some of you may not get what i mean)

aww....but my poor friend jessica...
she first read twilight long before the films came out and for three books called carlisle CARR-LIS-EL. like whistle.
its so funny to hear her say it. how the hell did she ever take him serious?

Wow this Pronounciation key/guide is truly needed, at least for me. Born/raised in Vietnam, I had problems with even the simpler American names, ie:James-(Jims anyone? lol). The additional complexness brought forth by names I never heard before such as,

Sibohan-Si(mumble-mumble), Carlisle-Carguy, Rosalie-Rose, Alistair-Allstairs(lol), Huilen- Húi lien, Nahuel-Nã uell, Zafrina-Zafree nêh, Kachiri-Kasi re, Amun-Amún, Demetri-Demitrêe, Caius-Cãiuss, Aro-Hào to name a few.

Kept me and my boyfriend giggling throughout the day to say the least!
-Have fun with my pronounciation now if you wish!
Well that wasn't exactly the reaction I'd been going for, 123 p. of SM's Partial Draft.

Does anyone know how you're supposed to pronounce Isle Esme?

Is it like aisle or eela? Cos I did pronounce it like aisle till I heard Jack Sparrow say Isle de Muerta, which is pronounced like eela, now I'm confused... help? :lol:

Here are my guesses, based on no facts at all. Isle de Muerta is a spanish name and thus pronounced eela instead of aisle. Isle Esme, being named by Carlisle and Esme I would pronounce aisle.

An argument against this might be that the island is off of Brazil which may give it a Portuguese pronunciation. I don't know if that would be eela or something else.
