Okay!  So - I was talking with someone earlier about how likely it is that I am butchering -everyones- name.  So I thought it'd be fun to see how we pronounce our own names and how we pronounce other peoples. 

 

Thalia - ThA-lee-a

 

Emeraude ( I -know- this is wrong) Em-ee-rude

Landon - Lan-done

Margrat - Mar-great

Alonzo - Al-Lon-Zoe

Maena - Me-Na

Orla - Or-la (<.<)

Matteo - Ma-Tah-Oh

Kilana - Kill-Anna

Samir - Sah-Meer

Frederic - Jah-en

This is nifty!

Emeraude di Notte: Em-er-odd di No-tay. Which means "emerald of/at night".

For reference, you could search actress Emeraude Toubia for pronunciation. 

Lady Emeraude di Notte, Viscountess
Mistress of Robes to the Queen of Italy
Reeve of the Italian Consulate

Genvieve - Zhen-vee-Ehve (French pronunciation.)

Maena - MAy-nuh.

Tara - TAir-uh.

Samir - Suh-mEEr.

Persephone - Per-sEhf-uh-nee.

Thalia - ThAl-ee-uh.

Orla - Or-luh.

Landon - LAn-dun.

Kilana - Kill-Ah-nuh.

Jean - ZhEn (French pronunciation.)

Alonzo - Uhl-On-zoe.

Bjorn - ByOrn.

Waylon - WAy-lon.

Beth - Beth (lol).

Emmaline - Em-uh-leen.

Nicolas - NIck-oh-lahs.

Arafel - Air-uh-fehl.

Toddia: Todd-ee-uh

Santiago: San-tea-ah-go

Orla: Or-luh

Kjell: K-yell

Levison: Leh-vee-son

Kjell is pronounced sort of like Chell/Shell, but we don't have the exact Kj sound in English.

I've always pronounced Emmaline "EHM-ə-lien" (ie as in "bite" or "mind").
