Pronounce?

Post  Lyon on Wed Mar 23, 2011 6:59 am

Kipper gave me a good idea. (The height thing >u>)
Now, I know some names are easy to pronounce and all, but I'm HORRIBLE with pronouncing names right;;
So I was wondering (And this is mostly for those with the real strange names >u>)...How DO you pronounce it? I don't want to be saying it all wrong this whole time c':


Like for example (-isbadatthis-)
My character
Lyon
I think most people would think of it as "Lion" or something, but actually, I've been pronouncing it differently.
For the "Ly" part, instead of saying "Lie" I say "Lee" ("on" part still same :I?)

But that was just because I thought it sounded cooler that way when I was trying to figure out how to say it so I ended up sticking it with. (Bamy agreed it sounds cool ;o; )

I know my Sharpedo's got a pretty weird name, so to help everyone out here goes:
Setzer - SET (like to set something down) and sir. So all together it would be something like "SET, sir!" with the emphasis on the first syllable. (Does that... Make sense...?)

I feel slightly proud of myself. Both of their names were pronounced like how I thought they would (although I only knew how to pronounce Setzer thanks to a Kingdom Hearts character *is shot*)

Kipper's name is pretty straightforward in terms of pronunciation, since its pronounced exactly how it looks. His real name (Kipling) has more emphasis on the Ling part, but it I haven't used it in any rps as of yet (since Kipper hates the name and since I came up with the real name after the nickname) so its really neither here nor there.

I figured Kuroshi was fairly simple but I spelled it out for you anyway out of boredom. XD
