    I am working on an A-Z series of Let's Plays of all standard FFH civilizations on YouTube and I am not sure how to pronounce various names correctly. May I ask for your help with some of those?:

    For the upcoming Bannor series:

    1. Donald Lugh - I found two versions on the web. a) [l-uu-h] b) [l-Ai-u]. Which one's correct?
    2. When you pronounce Sabathiel - where do you put the stress? First syllable should be correct, right?

    It is "Donal" Lugh. :)
    Cannot help you otherwise, though.

    I always assumed Sabathiel was stressed on the 2nd syllable, [suh-BATH-ee-el]. Also, I think your option a) flows better with Donal. Both of those are strictly my opinion, though. Maybe Kael will put in an appearance to help you on this one. Presumably he has pronounced all of his invented proper nouns while describing them at his gaming table.

    Thanks for the input!
    I'll stick with these suggestions.
    Didn't actually notice he's Donal before you corrected me, he he.

    How about Calabim names:

    Losha Valas - stress on VAlas or ValAs?
    moroi - should sound like [mOroj], right?
    Flauros - au like in a-u-rum?
