    All those are the same for me EXCEPT I say "ex-EGG-kyoo-tore"

    EDIT: Pokemon Battle Revolution says "DRACK-oh" meteor while I say "DRAY-co" meteor, so when they say "RIPPED APART BY DRACK-OH METEOR" I'm always like "MISPRONOUNCED BY DRACKED-UP METEORZ"

    I'd pronounce it like the word curly.

    Re: Pronunciation

    I read it like 'carol' but the 'rol' rhymes with 'earl.' (I have no idea how to write that out)
    I think I'm mostly doing this to be different.

    Re: Pronunciation

    I pronounce wrong pretty much every syllable of Simlish that exists.
    Also:
    Onett: OH-net (I've been told this is indeed correct though)
    Exeggcute: EX-eh-cute (like the word "execute")
    Exeggutor: Ex-eh-CU-tohr (like the word "executor")

    Re: Pronunciation

    I think it's meant to be ex-egg-cute and ex-egg-you-tor. Pretty much as they're spelt, really. They're very underused and underseen though so when people do have to recall their names they probably say whatever feels right. :P

    And Simlish? I only know "soon-soon", and I think it means "bye", but considering it's said at the START of The Sims 3 makes my head explode. I think they just made it all up. :P

    Re: Pronunciation

    As a rule of thumb, my pronunciation tends to be weird. Since I usually use them in Dutch, I tend to Francofy them, in the literal sense (= Dutchify).

    Ienzo from Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep.

    Seeing as I haven't played the game, this doesn't help at all.

    Re: Pronunciation

    I would assume it is Ee-En-Zo, but chances are that's wrong. Just as I pronounce Xion "Zee-On", even though in game it is explicitely She-On. Zee-On just sounds cooler.

    As for the rest of Organisation XIII (thanks to Kingdom Hearts wikia for reminding me who is who)

    Xemnas - Zem-Nas
    Xigbar - Zig-Bar
    Xaldin - Zal-Din
    Vexen - Vex-En (duh)
    Lexaeus - ... Lex-Ay-Us? Lex-Aus? ...
    Zexion - Zex-Eon. No wonder he has plenty of fangirls with that name.
    Saix - Sigh-Ix
    Axel - CHRISTOPHER COLUMBUS. Axe-El, duh.
    Demyx - Dem-yix. Said really quickly though, so it sounds more like Dem-Ix.
    Luxord - Luks-ord
    Marluxia - Marl-ook-si-ah
    Larxene - Larks-ene
    Roxas - ABRAHAM LINCOLN. Rocks-as.

    And Xion you already know.

    Ryu from street fighter is Reye-you to me but it's actually Ree-you.
    Aiai from super monkey ball is Aye-eye to me but it's actually Eye-eye.

    Re: Pronunciation

    Ah, another one I just recalled - I pronounce Shenmue as Shen-Mew, not Shen-Moo. Cows go Moo. Mew is cooler than cows.

    And a more obscure one- Ozzie-Man-Die-As.
