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

Shea is one syllable it sounds like = sh a but put together so its sha with a long a

Grace is like this: Grey sis but put togethere into one syllable grays

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.

My name is easy! Karen (rhymes with baren) and Circa is pronounced Cir (like Seer) and Ca (like kah). I really enjoy reading about everyone else's pronunciations, We have such a nice variety of names to learn how to pronounce here on HOL!

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! :)
