Mine should seem pretty straightforward...I think the biggest confusion would maybe come in the second and third letters of my first name.

The 'ae' sound is as it is in 'Caesar' - A long 'e' sound. so it would make my name pronounced the same as 'Gina' - think 'Jeena', basically.

Langston - long a, short o.

Enyret Egihci - as foreign as it can get huh but it's pretty simple... kinda

see for Enyret, and yr are silent for english pronunciations so it just becomes
AN (as in fan, can, hand) - NET (emphasis on net)

for Egihci, it's
E (as in pear, bear) - GEE - CHEE (emphasis on gee)

so put together, we have AN-NET E-GEE-CHEE

i suppose En as in Ann will be fine too :)

My first name is pretty simple, but my last name is a tad bit hard to pronounce at first.
Your average English word used as a name.

The first part is pronounced like "wore" as in, "I wore a dress."
indecisive, creative, studious
& that my friends, is the essence of a Sailor

My first name as well is pretty self explanatory as well.

A lot of people think it is pronounced Shar-let, but I prefer the other way.

My last name is just like the Greek wisdom goddess, Athena, pronounced Uh-thee-nuh.

Ummm, and your explained pronounciations, sorry, but I got probably three-quarters of your names wrong.
Ahem, well, excuse me.

I feel that people probably pronounce my name wrong xD. Especially my last name, which I presume people read as "A-duh".

Mine's pronounced eve-uh-lease add-uh, and the nickname "Ive" is pronounced like the word "live" (as in, "I live in this house," not as in "live from Chicago") without the L.

Li: just simply Li
car: another simply kar.
line: no, not line like in `inline skate`, just lin.
Licarline: Li-kar-lin. Though actually I like to pronounce it in Japanese, Rika-rin (with long ka-).

Ai: A-i. Not ay, I hate it when people call me `Ay` (Ai is actually one of my RL nickname, and some people do make mistakes). Well, except if you're calling me Naiad...
da: da

Clyne: klain. Like pronouncing klein (small) in German.

Li-kar-lin A-i-da Klain
