    I used to think Sorcha was pronounced SOR-SHA rather than SURR-I-KHA. I think I was influenced from the character in Willow but either way I prefer my own pronunciation.

    It's a tricky one... I've just crossed Marlene off my list as about 70% of people I asked would pronounce it mar-leen whereas I only like it when pronounced mar-lay-na.
