So I can be the dead-beat and end the game now, why not just open it up here.

Afterall, there are a few I'm curious to as well. (Quidscribis, Fahim, prolixshore, MyrddinFyre, etc.)

To start things off, mine is Vadon as though you were to switch the r with a V in the lovely element radon.

Since it is a made u word, at least in English, it probably can be pronounced either way.


I should email Dave Wolverton and ask him. [Big Grin]

Uh, Kwea, I hate to break it to you, but "Kwea" is pronounced "KWEE-uh", not "K-way".

I'm surprised that you didn't know that.

I always pronounced it "Kway-uh" in my head. I also pronounce Noemon as "Know-min". It's sort of close to the way he tells us to pronounce, except it's not.

I'm fine with any pronunciation that people want to use, but in my head it's "No AY mon", with the "ay" being pronounced as it is in the word "hay". Sometimes I think of it as NO uh mon" though.

Two things:

1) Are you talking about my username?

2) Does that mean something in another language?

Ok, one more thing:

1) Why?

Steve,
1)yes

3)it was a joke, read the whole thread, you might sort of get it, but it's just random letters, no meaning.

The proper pronounciation of my username is not verbal, but rather sign language. Or at least it requires the use of your hands.

Either p and H as letters.

Or, the ever-more-popular-on-AIM, "FFFFFFFFF!"

With as many F's and exclamation points as you can manage.

And when people ask me how to pronounce "Pearce," I try to tell them "Pee-Are-Say. It's like Beyonce, but not." But I usually can't keep a straight face. [Frown]

Raia, you really confused me. With your first post I thought I understood, but then your explanation to breyerchic completely reversed it. I pronounce it Rye-uh with Rye rhyming with Lie. Is this how you do it?

Also, this thread made me realize 2 things. First, I'm really bad at pronouncing names right, since I got most of these wrong. Second, alot of times I don't actually pronounce names in my head if it's too long. Like Lyrhawn, if you asked me how to pronounce it, I'd probably say Liar-hawn, but that would only come after some thought. I had to read out his name before knowing how I'd pronounce it, even though I've seen his name many times. Weird. I guess I just look at letters and don't read the word to myself alot.

It's only seven letters long! Now I'm going to start saying that in my head whenever I read my own name.
