My name is Ariel Costilow.
You pronounce my first name as;
Ar (as in what you breathe, air)
i (it sounds like a long e, as in eel)
el (as in hello)
You may refer to that red headed mermaid, if you please. <_<

And for my last name;
Co (it sort of sounds like a bird. "Caw")
stil (as the word, still, is pronounced)
ow (the word you say when you are utterly bamboozled. "Oh.")

In a nutshell, that is how you pronounce my name.

well my name is pronounced like this:

Naise - like Ness of the "monster of the lake Ness" and it rhymes with bless and chase

and Puentes comes from the spanish Bridges and is pronounced this way

Pu- like winnie the POOH or p o o p ( together the word) without the las "p"

en- like a simple "n"

tes- pronounced like and "e" not like an "i" (not like tea or teas) :huh: well a little difficulte but not so much <_<

Naise Puentes

best wishes

Well Ignis Divine is pronounced as following:

- I is like the i-sound of "me" and emphasis on this syllable
- g is then pronounced like the g of "good"
- nis is like the sound of the word "is" but with a n before

-Di of Divine is more like the sound of dee of the word "indeed"
-vine is pronounced the same as "mine" just a v instead of the m ^^ and emphasis of the word lays on this syllable

Well the name then sounds like this:

Eegnis Deevine

Okay, this is how I pronounce my name:

Herm-i-oh-knee (like Hermione Granger, but I just added an ''i'')
Mir-an-da (a normal name)

On IRC you can call me Herms, Miranda, or Hermy.

Well, my name is pretty simple but here we go!

Katherine Black

Ka - It sounds like the Ca in Cat
th - This sounds like the Th in there
er - This is kind of like when you're confused and you're like err?
ine - This sounds like the word in (the E is silent)

When you put it all together it looks like...

but it looks like...

And now for my last name...


Well I'm not sure how to put this into words :P
If you listen to how they say it in the movies, it's the same as Sirius Black.

A as in "a"
Do as in "duh"
Ril as "grill" without the "g"

So, Ah-duh-ril

Mil as in "mill"
Ner as in "her" with a "n" instead of a "h".

So, Mill-ner

Pretty simple!

My name is not easy to spell or to pronounce. It has caused many a headache in Ravenclaw, I'm sure. ;)

Silmarien Szilagyi:

Sil= sil, like a window sill
mar= mar, like the Spanish word for sea or like the "mar" in March
ien= ee-en, the "i" is pronounced like the European "i" or the English "ee"

Szil= seel, like the mammal (seal)
agy= the "a" is like when the doctor tells you to open your mouth and say "ahh" and the "gy" is like the "dieu" in adieu
i= "ee"

Put it all together, and you've got it! :)
