To my knowledge, Ulic hasn't been brought up before - but even if it had, I wouldn't worry about it. For example, 'Hapes' has been brought up in the past, and a consensus has been reached that it's monosyllabic, yet I bring it up because I say it as 'hay-pees'.

As for Ulic, I say 'oo-lik', much like ukulele. And 'Qel-Droma' as 'quel (like the French quel) Droe-ma'.

And Oppo Rancisis I say 'opp-o ran (to rhyme with ban) siss-iss'.


I'd say it like Hades; hay-PEES.

"oo-LICK kell DRO-muh" for me.

Are you saying you say oo-kuh-lay-lee as opposed to you-kuh-lay-lee?

Yes, that was my thinking (on the Hapes-Hades thing).

And I've heard several Hawaiians pronounce it ook-u-lay-lay, as opposed to you-ku-lay-lee, so that's how I say it. I figure if anyone would know, it'd be them.

I just finished The Old Republic: Revan.

Lord Vitiate: rhymes with Initiate (but as a noun, in-ish-ee-ut; not the verb, in-ish-ee-Cool
Nyriss: Rhymes with Iris
Xedrix: Zed-Ricks

I probably butchered Vitiate. I was saying it "Vih-tie-ate".

How do you guys in about the pronunciation of apostrophes? I tend to carry on with the word as normal, largely ignoring the apostrophe. I would just pronounce C'baoth kuh-BOWTH. With Mitth'raw'nuruodo, I just say Mith-raw-noo-roo-oh-doh. Also, how do you say Muun? I just say moon.

Actually C'Baoth is pronounced Sah' Bayoth. Got that from the audio excerpt Zahn read. Since he invented the name I guess that's pretty much how it's pronounced. Very Happy

And I usually add the apostrophe...unless it's just something really ridiculous. Which some of those Star Wars names are.

Somebody should start a most ridiculous Star War names thread.

As for ridiculous names, I vote for J'T'Pan. Any guesses on THAT?

But it's not spelled "C'boath". It's spelled "C'baoth".

Whoo! That's how I've always said it. And I always thought it was wrong. Glad to get that settled. Smile

No, I meant bow as in bend over, not as in one that is put on a present or you fire arrows from.

How does everyone pronounce "Avinoam Arelis," minor character in Abyss and Vortex I think?

The way I've pronounced it in my head is Av (like have without an H) ih-no-am Uh-rell-iss.

But I always pronounce names incorrectly.

That's how I say it. So if you're wrong, so am I.

To demonstrate my terrible pronunciation, I've always pronounced "Rakata" as "rack-uh-tuh" rather than Rah-kah-tuh." And when I read Plagueis, I pronounced Tenebrous and Tee-nee-bruss, rather than Ten-uh-bruss. And I actually pronounced Plagueis properly, but then after hearing Luceno calling him Play-juss I started doing that in my head.
