    I pronounce my name as 'uh-zah-ray' but folks call me 'azaar' like 'bazaar' and that's alright too

    I mean.. I very much doubt anyone might have trouble with how you pronounce Venmara, buuut..

    Rather simple, three syllables: Ven: Rhyms with Yen.  Mar: Exactly like the word itself - Ra: Take the word Run and drop the N.

    Urok pronounced like Uruk Hai minus the hai part.
    Astarod

    Ass-Ta-Rod. Easy. @Ryzan @Austere Can teach anyone who doesn't know how to pronounce it IG

    Con-Ven-Ee-Ence
    3rd syllable is long E

    I'm sorry, I don't know what "BURN YOU LITTLE...!" means.

    I'm not actually sure! I took it from the Latin word for "swamp" and modified the end to follow latin feminine naming convention, but since I'm not on personal speaking terms with centurions I don't know.

    See, this is why "Slave" is simpler. I also feel bad because I've definitely been pronouncing @Iloisee wrong in my head. 
  • NumiraNumira Member Posts: 173 ✭✭✭ - Distinguished
    Speaking of pronouncing things wrong, I read the pronunciation help file once.

    "Targossas:  tah- GO-sis"

    My life is a lie.

    no it's TARG-oh-sass, thus the shortname targ. Help file is wrong.

  • NumiraNumira Member Posts: 173 ✭✭✭ - Distinguished
    I wanna agree with you, but it also says "rhymes with 'pa go hiss' ", so unless it got messed up twice...

    It's actually 'tug-asses'

  • StefanaStefana Member Posts: 89 ✭✭✭ - Distinguished
    Most correct would be like STAY-fah-nah but I assume most people say stef-ON-uh which is close enough and totally acceptable.

    We are fools whether we dance or not, so we may as well dance.

    Hard T-la-la-eed is how I’ve been doing it

    Deucalion has cowardly declined the challenge of Atalkez to engage in mortal combat.

    You hug Aurora compassionately.
