    Key-lee-ah-mee.

    A tad cutesy, but felt it right for what I want his current personality to reflect.

    I was just thinking, not to defeat the purpose of this post, it's nice to know how to pronounce a character's name, but for IC purposes as long as you spell my name right, you are pronouncing it right. To your screen you could pronouce Kiliami , Wall-E, I won't cry. (Yes sometimes I read, what's on my screen, out loud. My wife laughs.)

    I have a similar feeling for all the typed out accents I've seen over the years, particularly the intricate ones that are supposedly for awesome RP. On my end, the only pronunciation that matters is mine, and that's why I've always felt that typed out accents have always come across out of context for me. I've read up on the histories of the races and cities and already have it worked out in my head how their respective accents sound. So when somebody comes along and starts typing stuff out to try and convey an accent, it loses me fast.

    Ah-Rah-Dor ("Dor" as in "Door" as in "Close the damn door")

    You know how you look at a perfectly simple word, spelt correctly, and the longer you look at it, the more incorrectly spelt and silly it looks. "Door" just did that to me.

    Today, I learned that I've been pronouncing nearly everyone's name wrong. 

    The end
    Commission List: Aesi, Kenway, Shimi, Kythra, Trey, Sholen .... 5/5 CLOSED
    I will not draw them in the order that they are requested... rather in the order that I get inspiration/artist block.

    Bo STAY uh

    It's a Somalian word meaning 'star.'

    I meant to model my character on someone I know IRL; she is Somalian, and was teaching me the language.

    A lot of people pronounce my name wrong when I meet them or talk to them on Skype. :)

    I usually get Kit-ar-ul

    I didn't :o I was making a new priestess and figured 'Ada' sounds like one ;;)
    How'd you name @Zeon?!
