No don't. Even the so called professional audio book readers can't get them right - despite being given a pronunciation guide.

I had most of the names right But had the last name WRONG! arrrrg

I had almost all of the names right, but the family name wrong - I was reading "g" as in "argue" - rather like in Polish than in French ;)

Lynsay based the origin of the family name on the French word, "argent" - meaning silver - because of the silver in their eyes.

I knew the name must have French origin, but I didn't know exactly what it mean. Thanks, Mr Spice :)

After listening to Lynsay pronounce the names for the audiobooks, maybe we need her to add to the recording or make a list here of how she intends the pronunciation. Btw, Lynsay, I liked your voice on the recording!

In my head, I think I'll always pronounce Lucian somewhat like Lu-she-an... with a soft sound in the middle, and Inez will always begin with the long phonetic sound of /I/ like I-nez instead of E-nez, as Lynsay said it...I had never heard it any other way. However, when Lynsay told us the correct way on the forum to say Eshe, I adapted just fine...and now I prefer it! :)

Wren, I think your idea of Lynsay posting a listing of the pronunciations is great. I don't have the ability to listen to the link that Mr. Spice posted, so I haven't been able to hear the correct pronunciations. I tend to think of the pronunciations as they would be said in French because of their background, but I'd love to have a pronunciation guide to refer to.

What is it that stops you from playing the link?
