I don't think that my name is to hard to pronounce, but some people find it hard. Here it is:

Ne- sort of like a Né or 'neigh' like a horse
Ha- like the laughing ha ha ha

Iss- sort of like a 'hiss' but without the 'h'.
ar- sort of like 'are' but without the 'e'.

Not to complicated now is it?...

Well, back on my native island of Felinicorpicus my name is Alljeh Kiherbertten. The "J" is silent and the "HERBERT" is, when I came to Hogwarts I shortenned my name to Alley Kitten.


Al - as in, "Hey, Al!"


K - just the sound a "K" makes

I thought I had replied to this a long time ago but after reading through all of those pages to procrastinate on doing my homework, I've found that I didn't post after all. So my name is:

Kim (rhymes with him...or as in the name which I also go by *g*)
air (as in the stuff you breathe)
(the e is silent)

accent on the "air" part

Suh (kinda like the beginning of Sullivan or like "uhhhhh" with an S in front *nods*)
loy (rhymes with boy)
row (row row row your boat)

accent on the "loy" part

Hari = HAR ee.

O'Duibhleargain = oh do ib HLEER gain

"Do this", "is" with a b, "leer" with an H sound at the beginning, "again" without the a.

Or you can just say "oh DOUBler gain".

That's probably not the "right" way to pronounce it, but hey. /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />

Hey, my name is pretty straight forward but some people may not know how to pronounce it so...


L-in-zee (the d is silent. Wow, I never realized how much I enjoy the silent d until right now. Seriously. I have a silent letter! *cheers* Well it isn't really silent, when you say my name it almost sounds as if its there but, meh, I still like it.)



Easy right?

My name's not that bad really. Hermione everyone here oughta know, Her-my-oh-ny. As for my last name, it's not pen-a, imagine a tilly (~) over the n, so it's pronounced pen-ya.

I doubt anyone has trouble with my name. /tongue.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":P" border="0" alt="tongue.gif" />

Marie - muh-ree

Merriweather - as in 'merry' and then weather

Seriously, if my name is hard for you to pronounce than you need to go back to English class. /tongue.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":P" border="0" alt="tongue.gif" /> /blink.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":blink:" border="0" alt="blink.gif" />

You pronounce it differently from Tamora Pierce, then? Because according to her site it's Dayn SAHR-rah-sree. Hope you don't mind if I just pronounce it differently from you, then. /biggrin.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":D" border="0" alt="biggrin.gif" />
