How Do You Pronounce Names?

I thought of that but to me it too much sounds like the Muslim bible (the Quran) and so wouldn't be appropriate.

how is that not appropriate?


Ghriahim- gear-ah-heem
Epona- eh-pon-ah
Fi- fee/fye I switch it up sometimes
Koume- coo-me
Kotake- co-tah-kay

Fi- Fye
Ghirahim- Gi (as in gimmick) - rahim
Saria- Se - rya
Epona- E - po - na
Farore- Fa - ro - re
Koume- Ko - oo - me
Kotake- Ko - ta - ke
Navi- Navi as in navigator
Tael- Tail
Tatl- Tattle
Aryll- E - rill
Ilia- Ee - lya
Nayru- Nai - ru

From a breakdown I tend to sound them either like in Japanese (Koume, Kotake) or like my home language (Portuguese) (Aryll, Epona, Farore), and some are me trying to sound like I'm speaking English (Tael, Tatl, Saria)

Fi = Fee (I know it's actually pronounced Fi like "Wi-Fi" but I like "fee" better)
Ghirahim = Gear-uh-him
Saria = Sar-eye-uh
Epona = Ep-own-uh
Faorore = For-or-"A"
Koume = Koo-may
Kotake = Co-take (I think her name is supposed to be pronounced Co-talk-"A" but I think my way is better. They're twins so they should both have two-syllable names)
Navi is short for "navigator" so that one should be obvious
Tatl and Tael should also be obvious since their names are from the word "tattle-tail"
Aryll = Ar-eel
Ilia = Ill-ee-uh
