Title: How do you pronounce your usernames?
Post by: Rat_lady7 on July 24, 2008, 06:46:56 pm
Kind of a weird topic, but I do wonder how members pronounce their own usernames. For example for my username it's pretty simple to pronounce if you are slightly fluent with the english language. If you speak like an american you may say "Rat" with a short "a" sound, rather then if you are British and say it with a long "a". The "lady" part is sort of like that too. The american way of sounding out lady is more "rushed" than the how a british person may pronounce it.

I remember mispronouncing DH's username like "DarkHoromon" when it was supposed to be "Darkhouomon". :p

I hate it when I mispronounce words, so I'm just wondering how do you pronounce your own usernames?

If you don't know how to pronounce my username, you shouldn't even be on this forum. :p I do have a few other usernames though including lbtlover, palaxax, and tlordame.  I don't think tlordame even has a pronunciation.  It's just a randomized combination of the letters in my last and middle names.  Palaxax is actually pronounced as pa-lax-is with the "is" part being pronounced as the word "is".  I just spell it as palaxax.  I don't know why.  To be honest, I was considering palaxax to be my username here.  I just thought of landbeforetimelover out of the blue.  I really thought it would have been taken, but I guess I was wrong.  I don't know why someone wouldn't want my username except for the fact that it's so long.  It's not a real issue for me though because I type at about 96 words per minute.

When I first heard of the word 'chronicler' a few years ago, I mispronounced it as 'chron-i-cler', when in fact the real pronunciation is 'cron-i-cler'. Also, another pronunciation it isn't is 'cron-i-cle-er'.

If you know how to pronounce the ever popular game, Pokemon, then you know how to pronounce my username, as it is derived from that and pronounced in the same fashion, just alternated.

If you're still having trouble, try this:

Just say, "poke a player" as if it was one word, and there ya go.

Oh, and the numbers are by themselves, not together.  So it's 9-8-4.  Not 984. :P:

:o Not only do you put my computer skills to shame, you put my typing skills to shame.  I can only do about 1/4 of that. -_-

The toilet images weren't exactly necessary either. <_<

When I saw this I had to think: "How hard is it for you to go to the toilet?"

I feel that your name is actually one of the hardest to pronounce names here.

Is is K-jeldo or K-heldo?

This certainly depends on the native tongues of the speakers. To me kjeldo would appear relatively easy to pronounce. My name prooves rather tricky for native English speakers, but Kacie did a very good job on an MSN microphone chat a while ago. The a in Malte is pronounced similar to the u in the word "cut" while the e is pronounced similar to the a in mountain.

See that's what I'm talking about. I completely mispronouced your name Malte! I even tried to pronounce it the way I am supposed to...it's not working...it just sounds odd to me...:p

I suppose microphne chats are the only certain way to bring a correct proounciation accross. Even with that description it would be a surprise if the name was pronounced quite correctly. If one pronounces English the wa one pronounces German the result is an entirely new language.

Well..I pronounce my username as Baffie pee..
But it's written as Buffypii..
The reason for that is that Buffy is my doggie's name..And the pii part is just another way of saying girl in Norwegian..hehe

Mine's a really tough one. I'll try to type it slow.

"Let-Us-Bay-Kun-And-Toe-May-Toe"

I'm sure that cleared up a whole lot of pronunciation difficulties out there.

Mine should be fairly straightforward, given that most of it is just the name of the main protagonist in LBT. As for the numerical portion, that's pronounced "five-oh-five"

My full username pronunciation is like this:
"Little-foot-five-oh-five"

Not like this. (https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=hxNAHPnWwcw) (And yeah, I’ve often wondered why this video exists, and why someone cared enough to make it.) It’s just pronounced like the mathematical instrument (https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=HlRqj80skO4).
