    How do you pronounce...?

    Thalia / Talia -- I am reading Percy Jackson and everywhere I look online seems to have different pronunciations.

    Tegan -- does it rhyme with Megan or is more like Teagan?

    Aislinn -- I've always said it like Ashlynn, but I have a student named this who says Osslynn.

    In my opinion (or at least the way I've heard the names):

    Thalia = Tar-lee-ah
    Tegan = Tee-gen (with a neutral vowel in the 'gen')
    Aislinn = Ashlin

    Thalia / Talia - I always thought they were different; Tha-lee-ah, and Ta-lee-ah. I've also heard Tuh-lee-ah for Talia.

    Tegan - Tee-gen

    Aislinn - Ash-lynn, pretty sure your student's parents are saying it completely wrong. Likely didn't research it.
