So I've made a thread with the same story - Aradus - which is up and running, though I fear that people will have a hard time pronouncing most of the names from the Alien planet. Some will be easier to pronounce, than others, but I'd like to hear how others - not just myself - will pronounce these, and yes, if you can give a better example for some of the name please do! I'll will mark them with stars, meaning they aren't set in stone just yet. I also need a name for a High King, Queen and their two sons, if you'd like to help me with that too.  :D  The names cannot be more than 8 letters longs, and there will be no middle name. Only Haflings gets one.

Seamar Pzomosepso
Gatoi Othika
Caorin Othika
Wilip Othika
Duplia Othika*
Sebze Othika*
Maloa Othika
Dzotlo Sezeai*
Time Imae Sezeai
Light Ltuno Sezeai*
Avalanche Im Sezeai*
Pheble Adrestia/ Pheble Haidee* Pzomosepso
Betsene Aminta* Pzomosepso

Thanks!

There aren't a lot, just yet and I have a little sheet with how to pronounce the names, if you are interested.

I'm going to tell you that, when there are more people, who have answered. Then I will in the end, write down the pronounciations. ^^

Kiyeranne, you're the only one who got Maloa's name correctly. Seamar is correct, Wilip. You should be proud of that. ^^

 

Keep on comin peeps!
