Top Ten Tuesday: Freebie

Topic: Names of Characters I Have Trouble With

1. Vasilisa Dragomir
I pronounce it Vas-o-lisa, Vie-Sale-e-a, Vasi-lisa. 
Anyone want to help me?!

2. Hermoine Granger
Obviously, Now I Know How to Pronounce it. But 11 year old me was confused.

3. Logan Thibault
Since They Call Him By His Last Name Through Out The Whole Book, This One Was Hard For Me.

4. Esme Cullen
Ez-me, and I liked it better than Es-mae for so long.

5. Schulyer Van Allen
I pronounced it Shoe-ler.. it is actually Skyler

6. Gemma Doyle
Gem-ma or Ghem-ma?

7. Clea Raymond
Clay-a, Ca-leah or Clee-a?

Plus Many More That I Cannot Think Of Right Now.

  2. Lol - I'm sure I mispronounce character names in my head all the time - it's probably why I never say them out loud.

  3. I'm interested in why #1. I agree though. For me she's so defenseless and relies on Rose for everything. Great list. My TTT

  4. Vasilisa is Va-see-lee-sa ;) At least i think it, it's a Slavic name so I'm familiar with the pronunciation. And Clea... I'd say Clee-a :)

    Interesting post, I've had a few troubles myself. Like with Siobhan :X

  5. I have these problems all the time. So I always pronounce it the way I think it's pretty :p Great list!


  6. Esme is a really hard name for me to read myself - Hermoine was hard when I was younger too :D

  7. Oh my gosh, I had the same problem with Esme and Schuyler! I was always so confused when Oliver called her Sky! XP

  8. Oh yes I do the mispronouncing thing all the time!

  9. Oh man, it is hard for some characters. I never pronounced Cinna right from the Hunger Games!
