Alright, how many of you can pronounce my name right? Here's a list of all the mispronounciations (and people sometimes refer to me as these permanently, even after I've corrected them a million times) with the correct one thrown in there...

1.) Lee-ohm
2.) Ly-ahm
3.) Limb
4.) Lee-uhm
5.) Ly-uhm
6.) Line
7.) Limon
8.) Lee-ahn
9.) Leem
10.) Flym

BTW, the answer is YES, my name is mispronounced on a regular basis.

Not really a kid. Not really an airbag. WHAT THE HELL IS IT?!? Who's asking? Are you French? An airbag is a safety device in a car that inflates during a collision and blocks you from smashing your head into the dashboard or steering wheel!

I would say #4... am I right? Even if I am wrong, I don't think that would really change the way I pronounce it.

Limb is the most common mispronounciation I get, Limon and Flym are the most ridiculous.

Well, I've always known it was pronounced Lee-uhm, I guess cause I'm Irish and that's my name in Gaelic or whatever.

It's #4, I know this because I keep hearing the name 'Liam Neeson' (I do know who he plays) whenever someone mentions Star-Wars. people mispronounce my name ALL the time. They get the first name, Joel, right often enough, but my last name, Poston, is messed up on a regular basis. Think of Edgar Allen Poe when you pronounce it. It's like this: Poe's ton. Now say it really fast. there, you got it. It's not Poss-ton, it's Poe's ton.
Once, I scrawled my name really fast in cursive, and some genius thought that my name was joel Kostov. That would be a decent alias....

Whoops, I'm rambling, sorry.

Lee-uhm.


hooray!


So basically you want to say that's your name is pronounced as it is written "Liam" (which is so not typical to english). Because Lee-uhm is altogether different. Leeuhm is hardly pronounceable.

I know this dude...his last name is Boutet. His name has been mispronounced and mispelled in these forms:
Bow-tet
Boo-tet
Boo-Tee
and the lamest:
Boutetson

Now anyone with any knowledge whatsoever of French would know his name is pronounced: Boo-Tay. Interestingly enough, this brings up many jokes, but whatever.

Speaking of bards with hard-to-pronounce names, can you pronounce this one?
Iolo
Extra points go to the person that can name the game series he's from.

Isn't it eye-oh-lo? And I think he's from Final Fantasy, correct?

Iolo was first introduced into the Ultima series around the mid 1980's ('84?) in Ultima 4: Quest for the Avatar, which was also when most of the other characters you see in the modern Ultimas now came in. (Shamino, Dupre, Gwenno, etc..)

His name I believe is pronounced Yo-Lo

Long live Ultima!

I once borrowed the Ultima collection from a freind. It contained Ultima 1-8 plus the prequel, Akalabeth. I played those games for weeks, especialy Ultima 8...that one rocked.

"Liam" just as in Spanish. Curiously enough, that sounds like "Lee-umh".

Pagan was pretty good, but very confusing for me, and what sucks is that you could not steal a SINGLE THING or (forgot his name) would be summoned and blow you to little pieces! :/

Quite frankly, my favorites are the first two in the Guardian Trilogy: The Black Gate and Serpent Isle, I am however hoping to get my hands on a copy of Ascension... *Evil Grin*

NOOOO IT'S BEREN THE MOTHERFUCKER. DAMN YOU BEREN, DAMN YOU TO HELL!!!!!!!

I love Ultima too, specially VII, VII:2 and VIII. Too bad Ascension is pretty lame.

Hint: Don't steal anything when someone is looking (i.e. steal from abandoned houses or turn invisible.
