How do you pronounce your character's name?

The clue is in the title!

How exactly have you always imagined your characters name to be pronounced? I will start:

A - ee - olif (sounds like olive) - on.

    Ah  - larn- da
  • ShahaiShahai Posts: 122Member ✭✭✭ - Distinguished
    It should be pronounced [ʃɑ:aɪ]
    Every day sends future to past 
    Every breath leaves me one less to my last
  • ArgysArgys Posts: 138Member ✭✭✭ - Distinguished
    It's like Ar - gus

    just with a y pronunciation, instead of a u.

    I think the IPA would be [si:nə]. Like Xena with an S.

    Wist-eh-ri-ah [ wɪˈstɛäː ]

    I know people (mainly from the US, I've noticed) always say it like Wyst-eeeee-ria, but a lot of people around here (Australia) say it with an "eh" sound instead...

     Losing their light in the glorious sun,
     Thus would we pass from this earth and its toiling,
     Only remembered for what we have done."

    Tuh-vee. Tuhv...? Tfffvis?

    Tuh/Tee/T Vist-or, whatever.
    I'm a postgraduate machine learning/cognitive psychology nerd now and am open to neato Achaea-based statistics/programming projects. PM me if you have any ideas.

    I'm currently working on an implementation of a pathfinding algorithm for blind sailors trying to navigate chops and dock at ports.

    "Woong".  Fairly simple.

    I pronounce Tvistor as "Ar-khai", myself.

    Low-dee. Which is apparently wrong, if you go by this Creedence Clearwater Revival track...

    I won a competition awhile ago to have Chris Bourassa paint a picture of Lodi. My profile pic is the end product. :)
  • EldEld Posts: 3,946Member @@ - Legendary Achaean
    Yes, though the song is referring to Lodi, CA, rather than the village in Achaea, so pronounce it how you want. Now I'm debating which of those would be a more annoying place to be stuck.
  • TanaarTanaar Posts: 284Member ✭✭✭✭ - Eminent
    Tan-arr. Depending on my mood, I might draw out the 'ah' in the middle.

    If you go off Latin pronunciation, would be "Seye" (like in eyeball!), but I usually just say "Zay".
    I'll probably be shifting over to Starmourn, seeya there!

    My avatar is an image created by this very talented gentleman, of whose work I am extremely jealous. It was not originally a picture of Amunet, but it certainly looks a great deal like how I envision her!
