Post subject:  Pronunciation on Names (SPOILERS!)

Some people in AJ have pretty strange names. How do YOU pronounce them?

:garyuu: KRIS-tahf GAY-vin
:kyouya: KLAY-vee-ur
:ema: EM-ah (It looks kinda like EE-mah...)
:gipsy: Stage name: lah-mee-WAH (French way of saying it)
Real name: thah-LAH-sah GRAM-ah-ry
:pencil: dah-RY-en
:Maki: MAH-chee toh-BAY
:doodle: VEE-rah MISH-um

Meraktis: mur-AHK-tis
Magnifi: MAG-nif-ee
LeTouse: leh-TOOS

Post subject:  Re: Pronunciation on Names (SPOILERS!)

for the characters you listed...
:garyuu: kris-TOF
:gipsy: her japanese name is in katakana that says "ra-mi-ro-a", so I pronounce it lah-mee-ROY-ar. seems to make sense.
:pencil: DAH-ry-en
:Maki: is definitely MAH-kee, as suggested by his japanese name in katakana. his lastname in japanese is to-baa-yu, I have no idea how that should go in english..
:doodle: i always thought was VER-ah...
Magnifi - i seem to pronounce it "Magnify" (as in the verb).... but maybe i'm just weird
LeTouse - leh-TOW-ss (as in car towing)

Mag-nih-fee
Shay-dee
Val-int
Vear-uh
La-mee-roh-eer (I already explained why La-mee-wah doesn't make sense; you have to pronounce the consonant before a "oir" sound in French, and it's nigh-impossible to do that with "roir"; hence why they don't have any "roir"s in French - at least, none that I can think of).

Note: put the accent and power into the syllable in CAPS. Double letters represent a letter sound that is pronounced for longer than normal. :)

Apollo Justice: ah - POL - lo JUHS - tiss
Kristoph Gavin: kris - TOFF GAV - inn
Trucy: TRUU - see
Klavier Gavin: klav - EE - er GAV - inn
Ema Skye: EMM - ah SKY
Shadi Smith: shay - DEE SMI - thh

Magnifi Gramarye: mag - NIFF - ee GRAMM - err - ee

Interesting note: notice that Lamiroir is the only word that requires more than three syllables to pronounce which is why it is so awkward to say and why it sounds especially exotic.

EDIT: Bah, missed out Trucy. XD

Kris-TOFF GAH-vin
KLAH-veer GAH-vin
TRUE-see
EH-mah (like the same way you'd pronounce 'emma' or the 'em' in 'emily')
Lah-mee-ROIR (sorta like 'rwar' - as I said in another thread, like the French 'la miroir' even though technically it would be 'le miroir'. - Am I missing something?)

Post subject:  Re: Pronunciation on Names (SPOILERS!)

Hm... looking at this makes me feel like I'm pronouncing all of their names wrong. When in doubt, I automatically use French phonetics, so yeah...

Kristoph Gavin - Krist-off Gahv-en
Klavier - Klahv-ee-yay (My Canadian logic: Klavier = Clavier, which is French for keyboard)
Ema - Ehm-uh (the same way you'd pronounce Emma)
Olga Orly - Oll-guh Or-lee (her name is a reference to ORLY, but since it's Orly I pronounce it normally. Plus it fits better with her first name)
Romein LeTouse - Rohm-mayn Luh-tooss (Romaine Lettuce, but I pronounce his last name the French way)
Lamiroir - Lah Meer-rwar (in my head, at least. When I try to say it out loud it comes out as 'lammy wahr')
Machi Tobaye - Mah-shee Toh-by-yay
Daryan Crescend - Dahr-yan Kres-shend
Valant Gramarye - Vah-lant Grah-mahr-yee or Grah-mahr-yay
Vera Misham - Vee-ruh Mish-um

And because I have time to waste, let's see how Microsoft Sam pronounces them:

Kristoph Gavin - Kris-toff Gah-vune ('une' like the French word)
Klavier - Klah-vaye-er (rhymes with 'fire')
Ema - Ay-muh
Olga Orly - All-guh Or-lee
Romein LeTouse - Rom-in Lee-towse
Lamiroir - Lah Meer-wahr
Machi Tobaye - Mack-aye Toh-bay (um...)
Daryan Crescend - Dayr-ee-yen Kreh-send
Valant Gramarye - Vahl-int Grah-mahr-ee
Vera Misham - Vee-ruh May-son (... wot?)

Post subject:  Re: Pronunciation on Names (SPOILERS!)

Lawl, I love Microsoft Sam. xDD
Oh yeah, forgot one. In my head, Valant = VAH-lahnt usually, or sometimes Vah-LANT. (As in a French pronounciation. Valant would roughly translate to something like "worth", am I right?)
I sometimes think "Klah-vee-AY" in my head too, since that's how I pronounced it when I first saw it.

:yuusaku: I'm actually not a fluent speaker of French...

But as far as I know 'valant' isn't a French word (though it sounds like it should be). You're probably thinking of 'valeur' (value) or 'valoir' (to be worth...). You do bring up a good point, though. Even if it isn't a word in French it probably is a similar-meaning word in another language. Could be useful for his bio page on the main CR site.

Hmm...are you sure? I'm preeeettty sure it's a word...you could say, for example..."Un diamant valant 2 millions de dollars" ; "A diamond worth 2 million dollars". That would make sense...I think? (I've been in french immersion for about 8.5 years...plus the online translator translates it as "being worth" =P) I wonder if that actually has anything to do with his name, though?

Lamiroir- Lah- me - RWAH (my head can't make me pronounce this well D:)
Thalassa Gramerye- Thuh-Lah-Suh Grah (short A) Mer Rye (like rye bread)
Daryan- Dare-e-ehn (like from dubbed Sailor Moon xD) Creh-shend (like crescendo)
Machi- Mah-chi either : TOH-bay or TOH-BYE-YAY ... I don't even know
Vera- Veer-uh Me-sham
Meraktis- Pal Mur Ack Tihs
Magnifi- Mag-nih-fee (this sounds dumb :D)
LeTouse- ROH-MAIN LEH-TOOCE

Lamiroir was from northern Europe, was she not? And if I recall correctly, some picture had something looking like Cyrillic letters, so I thought some French-like pronounciation was out, and I went with the simplest, just splitting up the written syllabels: La-mi-ro-ir

In German, äu is is prnounced like "oy" I believe, so that's Froylin (With the R like in German, not like in English).

Ja is simpel, "ya".

The "ch" in Achtung is prnounced like J is in Spanish, if that helps. "tung" is something like "toong".

Well, I'm only up to 4-3, but I do think that Vera would be pronounced "VAIR-uh". Like "very", but with an "a" instead of a "y".

As for Klavier, I always thought it'd be "KLAY-vee-ur". But apparently it's a German word or something, and I know jack about German pronunciation, so I'm probably wrong.

I'm conflicted on Lamiroir, but I'd say "LAM-ih-roar" or "LAM-ee-roar".

For Lamiroir, I call her "La-Me-Rohr" on some occasions, but honestly, I sometimes call her "Celes" from Final Fantasy IV (III on the SNES) because Lamiroir's singing reminds me of Celes' song in the Opera House.
