Hmmm, mine's slightly entertaining, but here we go:

Aur- Pronounced like "our"
e- "eh"
li- "lee"
a- "ah"

my last name is kind of self-explanatory, but it's:

Dela- rhymes with Bella
Rosa- like rose, but with an a at the end

That's it ^^

as an introduction I need to say that I was born in England but married a Turkish man hence the mix of names

I have huge trouble with claire in Turkey- mainly being called clara
Its Kl - air

I have huge trouble with Kılınç in England - with most people saying kilink

It is supposed to be:
k- a as in ago ( unstressed)- l- a as in ago (unstressed) - n- ch

hard to explain in any other way.

I normally just accept whatever's going!

Be... (like in bed..just without the d)
re... (like in red.. just without the d)...because if you want to make a soft r sound (like I say it) it will be difficult for many who doesn't speak spanish, because it's actually softer, but I don't mind if you say it like in "red" sound, because a softer r sound it's just hard to explain written... since I don't think there is any english word that sound like I say it...anyway just go with "red" sound without the d....or maybe it sounds like "reh" but without really saying the h sound...

Lee (like eel..just backwards)

My HOL name is pronounced
CORYPHEE ETOILE:

kor-ee-fee eh-tw-al

It is comprised of two terms used to indicate the rank of a dancer. Coryphee is Russian used in the Kirov ballet to indicate a dancer between the highst and lowest rank. Etoile is French and is the ideal goal of the Paris Oper Ballet, as it is the highest rank and honor available.
