Erin = EH-rin ('eh' is a short noise like get) http://www.forvo.com/word/erin/#en << pronunciation by nsteck
Aaron = AH-run ('ah' like cat) http://www.forvo.com/word/aaron/#de << pronunciation by thechamberpots
I don't mind it being used as a boys name in this instance, I just wanted to make sure you knew they were different names.

Sorry to anyone who read TSI. First draft was terrible. Second drafting now.

I've never hear Aaron pronounced that way. It's said eh-rin over here or maybe just down here in the south.
That's interesting.Mother, Hellenic Pagan Priestess, and Resident Greek name expert ^_^ Call me Dantea or Remy

I think the Erin/Aaron thing is regional - I pronounce them the same as Renrose.
Damian and Dorian Thranger - I'm assuming they, and Demitri, are all brothers, but I find these two in particular very close, and I think as a reader I may get confused. Demitri also strikes me as being very different in style to them as well. Adrian feels very mismatched with the D brothers and M sisters.
Alexander Morgan & Helena Dawn -- Alexah Leanne, Elijah Alexander - I'm guessing the kids are named after their father here. Alexah feels a bit trendy next to the classic Elijah though.
Alexah Leanne & Adrian Kendric -- Gareth Damon & Adria Mercy - Adria is a bit close to Adrian, I know it's probably meant that way but I can forsee problems for readers with two very similar names. How about switching it to Mercy Adria - stops Gareth being the only non-A name in the family and solves the Adrian/Adria closeness in one go.
