I watched Turn 0 of my ladder game with Mythonian and Krscrag and noticed how they called me 'General Aroon'. There are some strange names on the site, so I wondered how you guys pronounce them. My name is pronounced A-run by the way guys :)

Heyheuhei = Hey-hoo-hey
Gui = Guy (another person said goo-why)
Szeweningen = Sair-when-in-gin

Just a couple of examples. I'd like to know how these names are supposed to be pronounced....

Pronunciation... damn, I wish people could at least spell my name correctly. You wouldn't believe how often and how badly people can mess up my simple, short nick.

Why do you people write here as a rule something which is just your wild guess?

i don't know how heyheuhei intended his nickname to be pronounced, but most of you have no idea how to pronounce Gui or szeweningen correctly.

I think posting how you THOUGHT you should pronounce somebody's name with an equation mark, after the player already posted the CORRECT version is stupid and counterproductive, because people will never learn how to do it good. Arun - this is mostly to you. After both Widzisz (vee-jeesh) and Gnuffone (New phon-a) explained the right sounds, you should not write the wrong.. It's funny to read people's misconceptions, but i think that with such thread we should encourage players to pronounce the names correctly :)

I agree, you should at least clarify that you're just talking bullshit before you give people misconceptions.

Very interesting thread, though not sure it is useful beyond that. %99 of us will never talk to anyone else here (outside of the internet), so spelling it much more important that pronunciation.

Still, interesting as I said. Nobody messes up my name, except Gnuffone who doesn't seem to ever use the "h" in Chris. I understand why, as I am sure it is similar to Spanish (my 2nd language), where it is Cristobal.
