    Lol, where I'm from, pronouncing Grant to rhyme with aunt would have it sounding like Gronk with a t, except only a hint of the t 'cause Americans don't like pronouncing it fully at the end of words.

    1. Madeline: Mad-uh-line, so line like the word
    2. Brianna: Bre-anna, probably, but honestly I've always been confused by this name. I feel like I've met Briannas who said it Bri-ahna.
    3. Arielle: Ah-ree-elle
    4. Anais: Really don't know. A-nice? Might attempt an Ah-ny-ees? I have never met anyone with this name in real life.
    5. Annika: I would say Annie-kuh, but I went out a few times with a girl named this who was very insistent on it being Ah-nee-kuh, so I might attempt the latter to avoid potential offense from someone else.
    6. Maya: My-yuh
    7. Dana: Day-nuh
    8. Catherine: Cath-ryn. I would only have a three syllable pronunciation if I was trying to annoy someone, like she always made people call her Cate and I wanted to draw out her full name.
    9. Elisabeth: I would honestly say this just like Elizabeth. Any other way would make me feel like I was trying and failing to imitate a European.
    10. Alicia: A-lee-sha. I've met A-lee-see-uhs but that's weird to me.
    11. Kara: Kare-uh.
    12. Megan: Megg-in. This is the standard US pronunciation as far as I know.
    13. Rhea: Ree-uh.
    14. Lila: Ly-la, so to rhyme with Skyla.
    15. Aline: Uh-leen.

    1. Louis: Lewis, unless I knew he was French, and then I'd said Louie.
    2. Theo: Thee-oh
    3. Grant: To rhyme with ant.
    4. Maurice: More-eese
    5. Rafe: Honestly unsure, I'd probably rhyme it with chafe, the same vowel as in lay.
    6. Aaron: Air-in, and note that this is different from Erin.
    7. Rhegan: I would be unsure. This doesn't look like a name to me. Ray-ginn, probably, like Reagan, but maybe Ree-gin.
    8. Lachlan: Lock-lynn
    9. Cassius: Cass-ee-us, unless in a context where I know it's supposed to be Cash-is.
    10. Bodhi: Bo-dee?
    11. Colin: Call-inn.
    12. Gabriel: Gabe-ree-ell.
    13. Leo: Lee-oh.
    14. Orion: O'Ryan.

    My friend's daughter is Anais and she says Ah-nah-ees.
    I would pronounce the 'a" sound in the beginning of Kara like the "a" the word cat. Not Kare-uh or Kah-ra.
