    I'm a Native New Englander, though not currently living there, and while I don't have the accent myself I absolutely love it! I wish I had one sometimes, but I can understand why someone might not like the way names are pronounced in it. That's how I feel about New Jersey/New York accents!
    I went to school in England for a bit and while I was there I was in class with a few people from Yorkshire and they had really lovely accents, I couldn't always understand everything, but so much of what they said just sounded so beautiful!

    My husband (whose family is northern) liked Elle for a girl. I always vetoed it because I knew my southern family would pronounce it "ALE" or "A-Yell"... Sort of loses its femininity.

    Where I'm at in Florida, "T's" aren't pronounced. I really don't mind it; in fact I don't notice it until other people pronounce the "T" (Then they startle me by doing it). Aside from that, our accent is quite normal. Here's what happens with some poor names:

    Hunter: Hunner
    Matt: Magh' (the "t" part isn't vocalized)
    Quentin: Qwen'in
    Martin: Maur'in

    The funny thing is while I am quite good at faking accents, how ever hard I try, I cannot avoid changing T's into D's, or just forgetting them altogether. Unless I'm faking an English accent. Then it is quite easy : )

    As an Australian Taylor, I have to agree. Sometimes it's worse though: my grandmother is from a small town in rural Queensland and she pronounces my name "Tar-luh."
