So, how do you pronounce all those things out there in the roleplay? Here's the place to post it!

Interesting thread, I guess. Here's my main characters:

Sir Dractor rhymes with tractor.
the Old Man I won't bother explaining.
Elwen is ELL-when
the Sorceror-king: see the Old Man's answer.
Bernard Quorandis is Bernard quo-RAND-iss
Elbadar is ell-BA-dar
Jayko Falconensis is JAE-ko fall-CO-nen-siss

Really, though, all of my characters are given spellings that match how they are pronounced.

What I'd like to know is how Nathan pronounces Viktor's last name. :twisted:

This is also the case with most if not all of my characters (and I think everyone else's characters too)

I have always prononced it B-jarn too, and I probably will always prononce it like that because I'm used to it that way... Well, maybe I can break the habit :?

I never could make my mind up (no Scandinavian ancestry, you see), but I tended to go with

bee-YARN ("j" in some Latin-derived languages is pronounced like "y" in English).

You know what? Thats exactly what I thought. And I doubt I will ever stop thinking of him as B-Jarn.

I seem to have caused a stir. :twisted:

Believe it or not, I, too, couldn't settle on how to pronounce Bjarn's name for the longest while. He's gone from

bah-GHORNE
BARN
BAIRN
BUH-jarn
bee-YARN
bee-GHAIRN
bah-jon
and more, until I settled upon:
BAY-AIRN


So, have I been pronouncing the Misfits all wrong? :P Here's how I read them:

Reno: RHIN-NOE
Barbod: BAR-bodd
Bjarn: BAY-AIRN
Drakko: DRAY-co
Willem: WILL-emm
Graygon: gray-GONE

I'll put in my guesses on misfit names:
Reno: REE-no
Barbod: BAR-bodd
Bjarn: Buh-Jarn
Drakko: Dray-co
Willem: Wow, up untill not, i thought it was William.....huh...never read his name right...
Graygon: Gr-eye-gone

Well, I don't own any of the Misfits, so my opinion doesn't really matter, but they look alright to me.

Except Reno. I pronounce it exactly the same what as the Nevada City (REE-no)

Also, I assume that the -GONE in your pronunciation of Graygon sounds like the word "gone".
