Pronunciations

Postby Elec2684 » Sat May 22, 2004 3:36 pm

In many games, some names have unclear pronunciations. I was wondering how you all say them or if anyone knew the actual pronunciation... For example...

Final Fantasy 3/6
Sabin: Sah-ben
Celes: Sel-les
Strago: Stray-go
Thamasa: Thuh-ma-suh (town)

Golden Sun 1 & 2
Saturos: Sah-tor-ohs
Babi: Bah-bee
Alhafra: Al-ah-fruh
Mikasalla: Mee-ka-sah-yah

Lufia series
Selan: Sell-on
Gades: Gaydees
Daos: Day-ahs
Artea: Ar-tay-uh
Chaed: Chade
Durale: Doo-rah-leh

Um.. like these two?

Mikasalla: Mee-ka-sah-yah

Meh. Since I take Spanish in school, I tend to pronounce unfamiliar somewhat foreign-sounding words like Spanish words. It's just a habit of mine. But yeah, I guess it is kinda weird. :P

I normally just pronounce them in English first, and if they don't seem to fit, then I think about how certain syllables would be pronounced in other languages.
