Say That Again

A few people have been curious about the pronunciation of the names in my books, as well as my own. Here’s a little guide for you. If I didn’t list a name, it’s because it sounds exactly how it is spelled, but if you aren’t sure about one, just ask.

Let’s start with my name. Andrea- I pronounce it On’ dree a, but it doesn’t matter to me if people say it wrong. As long as I know you are talking to me, I will answer.

Agata- Uh gate’ uh

Aine- Ann

Arlana- Ar lan’ a

Barnali- Barn’ au lee

Brianna- Bree on’ na -If you have been pronouncing it Bree an na, that’s okay too.
