Don't you just hate to come across a name that you don't know how to pronounce? Or worse, you think it's pronounced one way, only to find out later that it isn't? I hate it, too.

For example, I always thought the name Kahlan from the Sword of Truth novels (by Terry Goodkind) was pronounced Kuh-lon. Once the series was turned into a television show, Legend of the Seeker, I learned that it is actually pronounced Kay-lin.

In books, you only hear the names in your head and not out loud, so it's hard to know if it's right. So here is a video and quick guide to Everealm's pronunciations for the unconventional names.
