Pronounce your name
« on: October 04, 2010, 12:57:41 PM »
Do you have a name that may have different pronunciations? I didn't realize mine did tell several people started saying it!

For instance, Lady Lissame
I pronounce it Liss-uh-mee, but many others are saying Liss-uhm.

Anyone else?

Ahhh... now this is a thread that could help me a great deal!  I found out about a year or so ago that a lot of people pronounce my Faire name phonetically, saying the first part as though it rhymed with man, like "RAN-ee", but instead it's an "ah" sound... (accent on the first syllable):

RAH-nee Zeh-MEER-uh.

;D  I thought that might be how you pronounced yours, although I wasn't positive, but I did have Lissame and Mairte correct.

 Ok, that had me.  I'm a Californian, and I was pronouncing it CAT-uh-Lee-nuh, like hte island.   I was spot on the others though.  

 Mine is simple.  Rowen   'Row-in'  

 I do not spell it Rowan for the simple reason that it seems like everyone spells it like that or the more exotic 'Rowyn'.

I figure my name is pretty straight-forward, but in case of any questions, it's DROO-duhn  ;)
