    You know who I'm talking to.  You cats and chicks with the strange usernames, or those names almost nobody knows how to pronounce.   And if your pronunciation is completely against what any tongue would pronounce.... why do you pronounce your username as such?

    If you don't have a colorful username but your name is.... unique, or the town you live in has a.... special... name, you can say that!

    I wonder who lives in Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch...

    For me, the lands my games are located in are....

    In tale of the Cursed Lantern, Kaiser Kingdom is pronounced  KAI-ZUR 

    Huon-Laren is pronounced Wan  LADHR-EN

    I usually pronounce it Bob.


    Nah, just kidding. I pronounce it pretty straightforward, as though it were the two separate words it's composed of. ;)

    Pronounced "Ty", "Tie", "Thai (haaaaaaahaaaaaa)"...  And then "Empty".  Though, it's just the letters "Em" and "Tea".

    Based on the character from Digimon and the Tamer/Trainer thing from Digimon/Pokémon respectively.  It's kind of a long history, but it's easy to pronounce.

    I had to look it up, 'cause I wasn't sure you had that particular pronunciation in English

    slim-m/ɛi/s-kə

    Yeah... not sure if that's clear at all xD

    Slim (my way of cheating on your name), how do you pronounce the part in slashes? I would guess like a long I sound.

    I used to have an online Belgian friend.  I learned a lot of my pronunciations of words and names from him.  So...  I never really had much of a problem pronouncing "slim"s name, ha ha.  Though, I have always wondered if it meant anything.

    Its from a group of board game review/news/commentator group called the Dice Tower. The main host has a habit of mispronouncing names of games and characters in games when they are awkward, and one of his cohosts started saying "Its pronounced Famiglia" (which is another board game, which they had gotten complaints about how it was pronounced in the past) every time the host would say he didn't know how to pronounce something.

    I think mine is fairly obvious... But if not, it's the word Video and the word Wizard. It's just CamelCase styling.
