    The way you wrote out Thalia and the way I'm saying it seem to be the same. >_>

    As for Ariadne, my Greek is in the classical/ancient bend (I learned it not just as a part of my heritage but because I use the ancient Greek in rituals) and so it could just be that in modern Greek it's said differently than it is in ancient Greek.

    You can always subscribe to threads you like.
    Super easy 2 step process:
    1) At the top of each page there is a grey bar with writing on the right... under “Thread Tools” there is the options to “Subscribe to this thread”.
    2) When you want to go back and look at that particular thread you go to “Settings” (under the green search box top right) In the middle it will show you all the threads you have subscribed to on one page.

    I used to use this a lot when I was answering a lot of threads but really only wanted to check back in on a few in particular. Not sure many people use it.

    PS: I actually dislike Sticky Threads that show up at the top of each page - I’ve been on forums before where it’s totally gotten out of hand - like only the three non-stickies per page. EEEK.

    That paragraph just set my little linguistics and etymology-loving heart aflutter. I have a B.A. in Classics and I was taught that theta is pronounced "th", but then again this was at an american college. I think we can definitely agree though, that since none of us can go back in time (sadly), we don't know how certain letters were actually pronounced in ancient Greece, and even if we could, we'd probably find that it changed over time and may have varied widely by region.

    Great list, Dantea! (no Cytheria, though? JK. You can only put so many on there!) Of course, I pronounce it wrong, anyway, with an "s" sound at the beginning.

    I would also like to add Antigone (ann-Tih-goh-nee)
    I hear that one pronounced incorrectly a lot.

    Good idea, Lexie. I always forget to subscribe to threads. I dislike forums that have a page of stickies as well. I've been on some that just have one sticky with links to helpful threads, and I like those a lot.
