Phonetics and you!


Recommended Posts

As I look around the boards, I see that a lot of the characters have really strange names. So, I thought it would be interesting to have a thread to show people how to pronounce the names! *dodges inevitable rotting fruit, vegetables, and rocks that will be thrown* ;D


I’ll start!


Melianna                Hollmen

(Mel – ee – anna    Hall – men)


Ok, that one wasn’t as hard, but others may be.


Tigara                  Kazim

(Tie – gair-ah      Kaz - em) pronounced Chasm


Jagaea              Kazim

(Jag – ay-a      Kaz - em) pronounced Chasm


Ikkiliad                    sur    Paendrag

(Ikk – ill – ee - add  sir    Pay – en – drag)


Zari      and Zela        Chasei

(Zar-ee and  Zel – ah  Chass – eye)


Jasmyne      Ceres

(Jazz – min  Ser – ez)


Eve    Mitayah

(Eve  Mit – tay – ah) OK, that one was easy.


Seth Roses

(Not gonna bother with this one ;p)


Heather al’Morris

(Another straightforward one)


Saeric                Talvus

(Say – ur- ick    Tal – vus)


Aos der’Kelman

(Ay - oss  dare’ Kel – man) Aos = Chaos - ch
