A ( as in another)-nas (like nas in nascar)- sa (saw) ( emphasis on nas) = Anassa (Ancient greek for "queen")

Di (like in dig) kai ( rhymes with guy)- os (like in hose) ( Ancient greek for "righteous")

These may not be the correct pronunciations, but they are how I've chosen to pronounce them.

Pad as in, well, pad

mé as the 'ey' sound in grey

Un as the Spanish word for one, 'un'

dó a bit like a shor 'da' in dawn, or a short and precise duh, without the 'h'

mi as 'mi' in the singing warm-up do, re, mi, fa, so, la, ti, do

el as the Spanish el, like el chico, el ciudad

So it's:

Pad-mé Un-dó-mi-el

THOTH - pronounced as TOT, the T's not like in "today", but in "but", and the O like in GOD

Van - it's not pronounced like the the vehicle, but like AN in Evander, except that in VAN the N is short

LOL!! /laugh.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":lol:" border="0" alt="laugh.gif" /> I've just looked back at my post from 2002 and.... hehe, I'd forgotten what a mischievous young second year I was.

No, I have always been called October Jackson.

And I'm sure I don't need to explain the pronunciation, but just for the record, it's pronounced:
October - oktoe-ba (as in the month), or Toby for short - toe-bee
Junia - joon-eea
Harriet - harry-ut
Jackson - jak-sen

"His name was... was..." Hagrid swallowed.
"Can't you write it down?" Harry suggested.
"Nah, can't spell it. All right -- Voldemort&#153;." He shuddered. "Don't make me say it again -- it's trademarked. Do you want me to get sued?"

I think I have a very easy name to pronounce:

Becca- Beh-Ka
Granger- Grain-jer

I hope you can pronounce it especially because Becca is Rebecca without the Re and Granger is Hermione's last name so...... ya lol

Emily is pretty easy, but just in case:
it sounds like Em a lee --

And Vale:
it's just Vale (rhymes with pail or Yale)

So hopefully no one calls me Emily Valey anymore. lol. /tongue.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":P" border="0" alt="tongue.gif" /> -Em
