    Nameberry Names: Pronunciation Requests

    Since it was mentioned a couple times, I thought I would make another Soundcloud account for name pronunciations. Log-in with:

    Username:
    Password: namenerd

    I also made a Forvo account in case we need more space. To make it easier I'm going to make this a two part thread. Put your name requests in a comment and I'll edit it into this post to make a master list.

    Here is the pronunciation thread:

    Can they be common names? I just want to hear how people from certain places pronounce names with certain sounds, or how some names are pronounced with a different number of syllables in different places.

    Charles, Samuel, any name that ends in -er (Arthur? Asher?), Louise/Louisa, Clara, Caroline, Anna, Sarah

    Yes. The popularity of the name doesn't matter. Adding those names now.

    I'd like to hear Cordelia, Isabeau, Lorelei, Lyra, Gwydion and Peregrin. They're on my list and people don't always like them. I'm wondering if people say them differently than I do. Do we just add our recording to the same group as the word pronunciation? I'll look into it tomorrow. Such fun, ikfly. What a great idea.
    Cordelia Eilonwy Snow | Evadne Snow | Felicity Astra Wildrose | Gwenna Moon | Lorelei Ondine | Octavia Eowyn Sol
    Pandora Willow Isolde | Petra Leocadia Silver | Sunniva Adar Rhiannon | Thisbe Wildrose

    Caspian Wilder | Damian Sparrow | Evander Thorn | Everett Lyle Ward
    Ezra Balthasar | Gwydion Alaric Hart | Konrad Peregrine Llyr | Malachi Tristan Bjorn | Phineas Robin Blaise | Theodore Winter

    I cannot see anyone else's sounds. I have uploaded some and can play those though.

    What about Lucille? It's "loo-seel" around here, and it's hard for me to hear it any other way...
