i have a friend who, instead of saying car-lyle, says care-oh-sell. like the rides where you get on the horse and go in a circle (up and down and up and down.....)

Awww! The Carlisle thing was hysterical when I got the book. I looked at it and was surprised. Half an hour from me is a town named Carlisle, spelled the same way, pronounced the same way. So my instinct took over and I've been saying it right the entire time. I told my fiance about it and he was like did they spell it Carlyle and I was like no it's spelled the same way as the city. We got a kick out of it. The Siobhan thing was a surprise. I didn't think it was said like that. You learn something knew everyday

All of my friends could have sworn is was like either carousal like the ride or Car-lee-saul i finally had to take a video off youtube to show it was pronounced car-isle. i thought Esme was is-me for a good 3 years. Still not sure how to say Amun. is it like amen?

I'm pretty sure Amun is pronounced exactly how it's spelt, Amun.
