    I live in the South of the Uk, but I have a welsh Accent.

    Kianna is a name it's a variation of Kiana. - I just looked up the actual saying of this is kee-AHN-ah - I now get the AHN. word.
    Thalia - I also just looked this one up THAYL-yah - I personally like Ta-Lee-Uh though.

    I agree with Ren's pronunciations, though I've never heard the name Thalia said out loud.

    If you're in the south of the UK, I'm surprised you don't get EVE-lyn for Evelyn. I find that almost everyone down here says it that way! And I don't see how that pronunciation should mean Evelyn should be spelt differently. EVE-lyn is the most logical pronunciation of Evelyn to me. EV-lyn is a new one though. Is that a Welsh thing?

    Breaking ACACIA down for you: A = uh + CA = kay + CI = see + A = uh. uh-KAY-see-uh

    EVE-lin/EEV-lin is the same. I've never heard anyone in South England pronounce it differently. And if you want to pronounce Thalia TAL-ee-uh you should spell it Talia. Different names, you see.

    Looks like both 'kianna' and 'kiana' are possibly altered spellings of the Italian name Ciana (chee-ahna) which can be a nickname for Luciana.

    I know a girl named Thalia, and she calls herself Thaal-ee-a. Like Al-ee-a, but with a TH sound in front.
    For Evelyn, I know another girl and she goes by Ev-e-lyn.
    But for the rest of your pronunciations, I think they're right!
