I have it in my guild note that my name is pronounced "quothe", but often people still get it wrong on vent. Usually they realize they are saying something wrong, however, so it's pretty easy to just correct them.

The source material for your name deliberately had the character Kvothe introduce himself by saying "rhymes with quothe" so people knew how to pronounce it.

I've had my character name since beta, Ewiges, yet sadly I've only had two people pronounce it right. Worst of all, most people can't even spell it right.

@BigBiker05: We should all be born with an inherent knowledge of how to pronounce such a left-field name or something? Get over yourself, it's not "sad" that someone can't pronounce that.

@BigBikerYeah, language of origin is not always immediately apparent, even if might have some clue on how that language is used, especially when so many people use made up, "fantasy" names that follow no standard conventions.

I challenge anyone to give the correct Celtic pronunciation for my characters named Caronwyn, Eirwen and Gairdh.As a tip, in Celtic, 'Maebh' is pronounced the same as 'Maiev'.The pronunciation of Deiwos isn't obvious either, but the 'dei' is pronounced the same as in 'deity'.Just because it's clear to BigBiker, doesn't mean it is to anyone else.

@Combatc87 "I challenge anyone to give the correct Celtic pronunciation for my characters named Caronwyn, Eirwen and Gairdh."my guess Caronwyn = Ca-ro-noo(ee)-inEirwen = Ay-roo-en (or eye-roo-en / ee-roo-en)Gairdh = Ga-eer-dah
