Pronunciation Guide.

I just looked at my reply to the ask and realised I got Augus wrong. It’s not Augus without the ‘ST’ (the S isn’t silent, Pia, you fool), it’s just ‘August without the T.’ Like the month.

Gwyn ap Nudd - GWIN (like win) app NEED

Augus Each Uisge - AW-gous(like August) ACH OOSHKA

Nain Rouge - NANE ROOJ (will also accept BRAT)

Ondine - ON-DEEN

(Ash) Glashtyn - GLASH-TIN

Gulvi - GOOL-Vee

Dullahan - DOOL-a-HAN

Dra’ocht - DREE-ukht

Mafydd - MAH - Fidd

Crielle - Cree - ELL

Efnisien - F - Ni (rhymes with Zit) - see - N

I think that covers the hardest names/words?

And remember, you can pronounce this stuff HOWEVER YOU WANT TO. This is just for those who like to know. :)
