    I accept that Hermione isn't generally pronounced in the "correct" way. But that isn't because of Harry Potter,it's just the English pronunciation of it.

    Much like Rhys is never pronounced correctly by anyone who isn't actually Welsh.

    Most of those I knew though,and generally the newer pronunciations are actually counter intuitive!

    Really interesting list, enjoyed reading it!

    thank you for making this list! Extremely good reference, and people should read it through.
    I've gotten so sick of people pronouncing my name Xanthe as Zantha, and then I must go through and explain that it is Greek and that the e is pronounced. erg.
    Thanks so much!

    The basis for my pronunciations of most of these has been the audio books for the Percy Jackson series, lol.

    Based on the list above, the regular ones I've been pronouncing pretty much right and the obscure ones I've mostly not heard of.
