Scootamew Says:


My name is a combination of Elen and another name (It's Elenkaia, if anyone cares) and I personally pronounce it with an emphasis on 'en'-El/en/- which is something most people don't get because of it's root, Ellen. Although really I guess you could use either if you wanted to name a child that. Just a thought for future reference.
