    what about the svartalfar chick? (I don't feel like opening up FfH right now to find the spelling, and I don't want to make an idiot of myself for trying)

    Faeryl Viconia: Fie-ril Wick-own- ia or Fie-rül Wick-own-ia (with very heavily trilled r. Ephasis on the penult of Faerly and the antepenult of Viconia. Classical Latin pronunciations are always correct :D )

    Fey-ril Vick-own-ea (roll the r, emfisise the Fey slightly, empisise the -ea)

    Sheaim: Shyaim
    Faeryl Viconia: Fair-ill Vie-cone-ya

    My pronunciation of Viconia is objectively correct, any other way is wrong, but for Sheaim, Faeryl and everything before that my guess is as good as anyone's.

    I pronounce it as: Fah-rill* Vick-Ko-Nee-Ah

    *rhyme with gill

    Speaking of the Elves: Arendel Phaedra? I have her down as: Ah-ren-del Fay-Dra ... pretty much say it as I see it spelt. Anyone got her as anything different?

    Ah-REN-dell FEH-dra

    and for that matter: Ah-meh-LAHN-chier (ch = like in Loch (Scottish))

    and I read Charadon with an initial Sh (influenced by French, no idea why...): SHAH-rah-don.

    Oh, where's my IPA font when I need it...

    I've always have Charadon as a Ch (so Chah-rah-don).

    Am-meh-lanch*-chee-er

    *rhyme with branch

    Arendel Phaedra: Ah-REN-dell FIE -Dra (r's trilled of course)

    Amelanchier: Ah-mel-ANKH-i-air (terminal r just barely trilled)

    Charadon: CHAR - ə - don (One of the few time I don't trill the r. This one always reminds me of the pokeman Charizard for some reason)

    For some reason, I manage to squeeze three syllables into Arendel's last name. "Fai-ae-dra"

    Charodon is pronounced with a hard C. The H is silent.

    For some reason the first time I saw Luchuirp I immediately said Lurch-pin. I know its wrong, but it's stuck in my head now.

    Fairly certain that Nordic Lj == English L-y.

    It's a palatalised L, I think.

    This probably has nothing to do with this, but does anyone say Duin Halfmorn's name in your head as "Baron Duin von Halfmorn"?:confused:
