Aphy, fairly simple - the 'ph' is typical British pronounciation of 'f'

Avery (see above if you're confused) and Brookshire like a babbling brook, and shire, as in the place where Sam and Frodo live (or Frodo used to...ahh! I hope that's not a spoiler for some people!! I love you!! /unsure.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":unsure:" border="0" alt="unsure.gif" /> *runs away*)

Ok,my name sounds like this.

Phoe:Sounds like 'fee' as in to pay a fee;

ni:Sounds sort of like 'knee'

cia:Well it sounds a bit like 'sha' but would rhyme with 'car' without the 'r' sound.

Me:No,it is NOT 'me',it sounds like 'meh' that rhymes with 'chair' without the 'r' sound.

llyn:It is like a person's name,'Lynn'.

If you put it together you will get ;

Phoe-ni-cia Me-llyn

It should sound like ;

fee-nee-sha meh-lynn

Do you get it? /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" /> I know it looks difficult but you'll get the hang of it soon. /tongue.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":P" border="0" alt="tongue.gif" />

It's really easy:

'To' as in automatic
'Bi' as in goodbye
'As' as in kiss

"Ze' as in zebra (the English sound)
'Phyr' as in fur
