My name is pretty... easy... It's not as interesting or from various origins as other names, but it's quite "sing-songish" and not difficult to remember. /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />

Elle: pronounced "L," like when you say the alphabet. It gets really aggravating when people call me Elle-lay and some other mispronounciations.

Saint: pronounced, well... "saint," like in St. Charles or St. Peters

Everyone here can pronounce PIX, I'm sure.

"Ouais" is sort of the French word for "yeah." To get it right, you have to say oo-eh really, really fast. It ends up sounding like WEH, which is the best way. /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />

Gabrielle

Gab (like the word to talk. It isn't so hard.)
ri (like the re in re-do)
elle (Say the letter L)

Walker

Walk (like the word walk)
er (ending in sound in river.)

These are pretty easy.

My name is kinda odd...... /biggrin.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":D" border="0" alt="biggrin.gif" />

Marguerite:

Mar-rhymes with "tar", beginning with a M sound
guer-rhymes with "stir", beginning with a G sound
ite-like "eat"

Daae:

Like "die", then the last part rhymes with "say"

And NO, Daae is not pronounced like day! /tongue.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":P" border="0" alt="tongue.gif" />

It's all french so that explains it.......

vin=
rhymes with bin except with a "b"

Braen=
kind of sounds like brown except with an "aaahh" instead of an "owww"

wood=

Well, I actually have no idea of how you correctly pronounce my name, cause I got it from a couple of books (first name from one book and last name from another one), but I'd like it to be pronounced like this:

Ve - rhymes with 'the'
ri - 'ree'
ty - 'tee'

Ve - same as above
lis - like in 'list' but without the t
