    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?
