mine sounds more like volt-tree... with more emphasis on the 'vol'

but I have absolutely no idea.

I keep trying to pronounce it like "Car-lyle," but I'm so used to the other way that now it sounds weird :P lol, now I think of it, in elementary school's my teachers were always like, "Skip names on the tests, they don't matter!" So I never really bother nowadays to read names that closely :roll:

And I was under the impression that you say "Lee-ah"...
i said it carlysle
i think the way i said it was weird but im so used to it now lol!

I'm sorry if I missed this in earlier pages - how do you say Eleazar?

I'm pretty sure he and Carmen are the Spaniards in the Denali clan... and I don't know Spanish/Spanish pronunciation very well at all.

I'm saying it El-ee-eyy/ayy-zer, if that makes sense? Like Eliezer Wiesel, the author?

It's Cai-us and Vol-tour-ee (as in: I just went on a tour of Volterra). I listened to the audio books lol.
