    Blodfyr?

    I had a dream about an Elvish/pixie, girl which name was Blodfyr - meaning Blood pine in English. Well .. How would someone overseas or English speaking pronounce it?
    I think I say it like [Bloodfyre].

    I'd pronounce it Blod-fire. I like it - you're lucky you have dreams like that, lol. Although I should mention - when I first saw you heading I assumed it was a male character. I know it's just perception, and now you say it I can definitely see it a girl as well, it just seems rather masculine to me. (I also thought it sounded like something out of Eragon, but that's a compliment. I love Eragon names )

    It would be 'blod-fer' as a 'y' in Welsh can sometimes masquerade as an 'e' according to my Welsh friend.

    @Calypso - Blod-fire sounds more English than my statement xD. It's understandable why to think male, which I did as well in the dream, lol. Most because fyr also means boy in Danish. So, it might an unisex name in the pixie/elvish world? ^^ (I've only seen the movie, which wasn't really my style because I'm bad a movies. And thanks, it has a lovely plot that story ^^)
    - She is actually based on Clare B. Dunkle's trilogy of the Hollow Kingdom, because I'm daydreaming these books.

    @Renrose - when I hear this I immediately think about fairies. Maybe because - again - my danish side step in and tells me Fer is Fe. But I can totally see/hear that it is better said like that, instead of how I would pronounce it.
