  • So how do you pronounce your Toons name?

    I thought I would start one of these to clear up some confusion on pronounciations so forgive me if this has been done in the past.

    Chancester is pronounced: Chance-ster

    It is not pronounced Chan-chester like I have heard so many times on comms.

    I have had some trouble with some of the guild toon names so feel free to enlighten the rest of us on how we should pronounce your names instead of us just calling you the Lazy Paladin, Uber Ninjaist of Rogues, or that smelly Hunter...and yes you know who these are referring to :)
    Lub it on!!!

    You'll always be Chan-ces-ter to me!

    Hitchins is pronounced sexy.

      Man-eth-er-an.

      Not Mane-thur-an

      And, unless you're Chadweeko or Brano, Not Manny-theren, even.

      Of course, Manny works just peachy for me :)

        Sajier = Say jer.

        not Sa JEER.

        Why? Because its based on my real name and I chose to say it that way :).

          Mine's Bear-a-mar but "Bear" is more than adequate.

            So Manny, it's pronounced "ma-NETH-er-in", right? The only other way I've heard it pronounced is "MAN-ih-THEER-in", but I don't think that's correct.

            As for me... well... it's pretty simple... Gavin. Or you can take the even simpler route and go with Gav. :) Of course some would claim that my name is actually pronounced "NIN-ja", but to them I have only this to say:

            /stab
            Ninja

                There's been much debate over this so perhaps those with knowledge of Chinese (cantonese) pronunciation can elaborate.

                My WoW toon's name is Siulung. Appropriately, Siu Lung. It literally means "Little Dragon" in Cantonese. I pronounce it "syoo loong". I doubt it's actually pronounced "Swee lung", as people like to say... although it does roll off the toungue easier.

                I derived the name from Bruce Lee's REAL name. Which was Lei Siu-Lung (as he was known in Hong Kong)

                http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bruce_Lee

                In RL I was born the year of the dragon, and my WoW toon is a gnome... so, "little dragon" made sense. Also, it's one of the reasons I like to pursue CC rep and BoN rep as they're closely associated with dragons.

                  Pistos (Pee-stose). Don't think anyone really gets it wrong anymore, but just in case.

                  Though it doesn't really matter if you get it wrong as long as you keep the bad guys from hitting me.

                      Yeah, Gav. man-NETH-er-in.

                      The other one is all 'Mannytheren' and while close to my nickname, just ain't close to the way i like it pronounced.
