I always find myself mis-pronouncing the easiest names. Haha
Like for Carlisle, I used to say: Car-le-sile
And for Rosalie, I still say: Rose-a-lye
I never knew it was Rose-a-lee

The original twi-guy.
While people obsess over Edward, I have a thing for Alice. Hehe

Whenever I read the book, I still pronounce Carlisle as Carl-eese.
I know how it's supposed to be pronounced, but I prefer my way. Haha. :D

Thanks for the clarification on Siobahn.
I love that name.
But that could be my Irish heritage coming out of me.
(Not from Ireland, but all my ancestors are, and I wish I were).

That's really the only name I had trouble with.
And Esme for some reason.
I apparently pronounced it right, but I thought I was wrong!!

I was having SO much trouble with Carlisle's name. I wasn't saying it like the pronunciation key. I kept thinking I was supposed to say the "S". Little did I know, it was silent & started calling him Car-LIS-le. It should've been so easy, but not. Haha!

I say Nahuel like Na-u-el with just a hint of "h" in there.

I love the pronunciation key, it's helped me so much.

I say a cross between NAY-WHO-ELL and NAY-OO-ELL.
And Uley like OO-LEE.

The only name I really pronounced wrong, (besides ^them^ possibly?) is I always pronounced Leah like LEE. Until I read BD, and it said Sam's nickname for her had been LeeLee, and I thought to myself, it must be LEE-UH, or else his nickname would have been Leah-Leah, or something like that...maybe? :? I don't know...

Ha Ha Ha! I lent my friend the Series, and she couldn't pronounce half of the character's names.
* She said Carlizle
Aru- Aro
Kuwis- Ciaus
Izmae- Esme

Ha Ha Ha! She was so funny.
