Here's how you pronounce my name:
Ar - as in arrrr
wen - just wen

It's easy lol, the same way as you pronounce Arwen from Lord of the Rings. <_<

Hi all.....let me try to explain as well......Even if it is easy.

Li = souds Lee
a = same soud as the "a" of mamy
ne = "e" it is a long "e" as Lee (without the L)

A = like ah or like the "a" of Latin
bre = "e" sounds as eh (like "e" in bread) name is: Lee-a-nee Ah-bre-u

Well, mine could be Lee or Le-ah - I like both so I'm not too particular.

Just spell it right, that's all I ask. Thanks!

My HOL name is easy: Tab-i-tha Cole (as in the black fossil fuel.) My Muggle name, on the other hand, causes people problems. Few people can get it through their heads that "Aileen" is pronounced A-leen not I-leen or Ay-lee-en (alien) or amy or some other odd variation.

I think my name's easy to pronunciate....
Tri *the 'i' like in 'mister'
ni * the 'i' pronunciated like in the 'tri'
ty *ty pronunciated like tee

lol or remember a phone ringing, isn't Eve? Well for who watched 'The Matrix' it's pronunciated like that Triny

And I think McGuire everyone knows how to pronunciate XD it's a preety common name, or just remember Tobey McGuire(the guy from Spider Man), or Lizzie McGuire XD
