Yeah, it is kinda tricky. I always pronounce it "nee AH vin", but Thorongil, who is our resident expert on celtic/gaelic pronounciation, says it is "Ny EVE in" like the word "naive" with "in" on the end. Gotta say, sorta fits....

What about the Gods? For example, I think:

Telemachus woud be Ta Lem Ah Kus

Diomedes would be Die Ohm A Dees

Myrkul would be Mir Kool

Genesis is easy: just like the band. Jen A Sis

Who else? What about the goddess of vengence? She has a really LONG name.....

Cecil --
SEH - as in SEction
SUHL - as in foSSIL


but it could also be prounounced like this:
SEE - as in the verb, I see you!
SUHL - as in foSSIL again


but I am sure the first one is the correct one.

And for Harvey, HAR as in HARd, and VEE as in VIETnom

Bodhin:

Boh-dn

Derived from Sanskrit, meaning something like "Bringer of Light" as in wisdom or enlightenment. Seemed like a good magey name.
