How should I pronounce Elysiun??? :smiley:


(mthoenes) #2

why it is pronounced “elysiun” of course.

Really, I have no idea, but if you search the forums, I think has already been answered.

I asked this question before. My pronunciation was, and still is, L-E-C-un.

However, there’s a girl at school named Elysia (not sure if that’s the right spelling), pronounced Lee-suh (Lisa), so who knows? Maybe it’s lee-see-un, with the E at the beginning being totally pointless!

Does it matter how you pronounce it? It’s not like Kib’s standing behind you with a bat.
