    My pronunciations:

    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).
