    Erin for a male is confusing...I kept having to stop and remind myself (no, it's a guy) every time I read it. Aaron???

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Typically in Australia and the UK there is a distinct pronunciation between Erin and Aaron as renrose pointed out. But as far as I knew in the US they were virtually pronounced the same.
