I've seen a lot of interesting names here lately, and I have no idea how to pronounce half of them.
Plus, there has been some confusion on how to pronounce my name *cough*Malien the Alien*cough*, so I just thought I'd clear that up.
First of all, my name does not rhyme with "alien." It sounds more like this:Ma
(rhymes with "pa" or "ah" or "la")li
(rhymes with "lee" or "see")en
(rhymes with "hen" or "pen")
So if I put it together, it sounds like Mah-lee-en. The stress is on the "mah."
Now, Clementielle is a whole other story. I wanted it to sound French, and part of the name is French so it sounds something like this:Cle
(sounds like the "re" in "ready" and it also sounds like the "e" in "bread", best representation is the "cle" in "cleft")men
(if you know French then you should know how it sounds, if you don't, then the closest sound I can give you is that it sounds like the "Mon" in Monty.)tie
(pronounced like "tee")elle
(rhymes with "bell")
So if I put this all together, it sounds like Cleh-mon-tee-ell.
So my full name is pronounced:Mah-lee-en Cleh-mon-tee-ell
It's much easier to pronounce if you speak French.
Yeesh! This post was long. I hope I haven't confused anyone...
So what do your names sound like?
