The Y makes a long I sound like in the word sigh.

I hope that was helpful :)

My name is Simelírië Tindómiel.

It is pronounced like:

SI = as in See.
Me = as in May without the "y".
Lí = like Lee.
RI = as in RIng.
Ë = Like the "e" in Hey!.


= as in Teen.
DÓ = as in DOctor.
MI = as in Me.
EL = as in ELephant.


It's really not as hard as it looks. :P

My name is Ash Wiseth. The pronunciation of "Ash" is the same as for the word "ash" (a as in cat, then sh as in shore). The pronunciation of "Wiseth" is a bit less intuitive: "Vee-set" (but it still is not too bad, at least in my opinion :P ).

LO (lengthen the 'o' part a bit)
RIE (pronounce only the 'ri' part)
E (pronounced as 'eh')
LI (as in Lee)
SON (pronounce it like 'won')

should be easy enough :)

I think mine is pretty straight forward, not quite sure how to explain it.

Alexander- A (aaaa)
lex (same pronunciation as Lex Luther)
and (sounds like the word, and)
der (as in the word, cylinDER)
Put it together and it's Alexander.

Brighton- Bright (sounds like the word, bright)
On (sounds like the word on)
Put it together and it's Brighton.

People mispronouncing my name is no oddity, so I'll gladly explain:

Elphias = elf-eye-us
Knightley = night-lee

Elphias Knightley. Short, sweet, rolls off the tongue. My good friends and my family do tend to call me 'Elphie' to embarrass me, though. Feel free to call me what you wish!

My name is easy enough to pronounce.

Just think Edith (Ed - seed without the 's', and Ith- as spelled)

Well, it has been a while since I've done this, so here's a new round for the new school year.

My first name is pronounced Zee-Nix. Last name is pretty simple...James. :D

My first name is Sachiko (幸子), which means "happiness":
➝ Sa: The A is short, pronounced like in the words At and After. ➝ Sah
➝ chi: The CH is sharp, with a pronunciation similar to iTCHy. The I is short, but similar to the vowel sound in mEEt. ➝ tchee
➝ ko: This is the stressed syllable. The O is, once again, short. It is similar to the one in Owe. ➝ KOH

My last name is Murata (村田), which means "a village's rice paddy":

➝ Mu: The U is short. Its pronunciation is similar to that in in rUle. ➝ Muu
➝ ra: I don't think the English language has the R sound which is necessary to pronounce my surname correctly. An approximation would be the rolled sound in beTTer. The A is the same as in SAchiko. ➝ rrah
➝ ta: This is the stressed syllable. The A is also the same as in SAchiko. ➝ TAH

• Sachiko ➝ Sah-tchee-KOH
• Murata ➝ Muu-rrah-TAH

PHEW, this was much harder than I thought it would be!

My apologies in advance if this isn't 100% correct: I wrote it with the American Standard Pronunciation in mind. However, I might have a slight accent which makes it difficult to accurately hear and pronounce some English words and sounds. :wacko:


• If you're still curious, writing 幸子村田 on Google Translate and selecting the voice option will allow you to hear the proper pronunciation of my name!


• In Japan, your family name comes before your given name. As such, my name would be Murata Sachiko, instead of Sachiko Murata.
