Bia - the "i" is like in bee and "a" like in "avada kedrava". This name is actually a short name for the portuguese name Beatriz.
Rodrigues - "R"is like "H" in honey, "i" is like "bee" and "gue" is like in "ghetto" => Hodreeghes.
Hope I didn't make a mess trying to explain it x)

Bon like the "bon" in Bond, James Bond.
de with a short e sound (if you know French its basically de) (i hope that made sense)
vik like the "vik" in Viktor Krum

So basically:

THAY-ya BON-de-vik

My name is hard to pronounce so here it goes.

Noo (As in moo and coo)
er (perfect)
Noo- er
Noor NOT Nor which rhymes with door and is not how you pronounce my name.

I'm not going to do my last name because its just too hard!!
