How about Salladhor Saan?
SAH-la-door Sahn (Long "ah" for Sahn )
Jaime - Jamie
Cersei - Sirsay
Tyrion - Tirr eon
Daenerys - Dayner reece
Targaryen - Tar Garr ien
Arya - Arr ia
The spaces are just to demonstrate the different sounds. I run all the syllables together.
Interesting thread lol...
I make up pronunciations... specially with those names like R'hllor...
I pronounce ser as sir... and Arya is Ar-ya (just spanish way)
And Jaime... it's a very normal name here so I have never had a problem with this...
R'hllor was something pretty weird - I think it was mentioned in an Arya chapter that it sounded sort of like Rulore.
how about SANDOR?
it is a hungarian name, it should be pronounced like SHANDOR, with expressed A and O.
Bringing the word from Ran (Elio) of the Westeros site:
George isn't really interested in pronunciations -- he provides his pronunciations when people ask, but he tells people to say them how he wants (I've never seen him correct someone with an unusual pronunciation of a name, for example).
Separate names with a comma.
