It’s been pointed out to me by various friends and family who read Reclaimer that not everyone pronounces Ferial’s name the way I do. This, of course, amuses me, and I thought I’d take a moment to put down a pronunciation guide for his name, in case your own pronunciation differs from mine.

Ferial – Fuhr-EYE-uhl

A couple of alternative pronunciations I’ve heard are FEHR-ee-uhl and Fhuh-REEL, with that last one coming out sounding almost like someone asking, “Are you f’real?!”

Are there any other variations I’ve missed, or any other character names whose pronunciations you’ve wondered about?
