Sila can be pronounced as:
Si (as if you say "yes" in Spanish)
la (as in laugh)

Actually it is an "i" without a dot, but that is not common in most languages, so feel free to pronounce it as "si" :)

My first name is Elvish (Quenya to be exact) and means water spirit:

fëa = spirit - I would pronounce this bit like fey-a.
nen = water - This part is simpler, just nen as it's written.

Ashling was a name I used in a story based on the Irish name Aisling, meaning dream or vision.

Ianto is a variant or nickname of Ieuan (YIGH-yan), the Welsh version of John, meaning "god is gracious." It is pronounced YAN-toh.
That's "yan" as in man and "toh" as is, well, toe. Though I have heard "yahn" as in yawn, mostly from Americans. This is mostly due to a difference in accents and is also acceptable.

Maddock is a modernized variant of the old Welsh name Madoc, meaning "good." Both names are pronounced MAH-dock.

This forum is really helpful for some of these names! They're all really creative and now I know how to say them! :rolleyes:

My first name is pretty simple. Elliya is EL-ee-yuh (similar to Elliot but with an A at the end).
My last name is French, so it is pronounced BEAR-trahn. The R's are the French back-of-the-throat kind of R's, and the D at the end is not pronounced.
