No worries Cord Hurn.

I'm not a native English speaker and wasn't familiar with the femalish name 'Joyce' so it didn't bother me the way it did you.

Here's a name-meaning link: http://www.behindthename.com/name/joyce. Seems it's not strictly a female name and contain both the meaning rejoice and lord. The earlier male version was spelled Josse. I'm not sure how Medieval pronounciation makes it sound. Probably Germanic sounding.



I had no idea that Joyce was not exclusively a feminine name, Shadowbinding Shoe! Thank you for the link and your understanding! LOL, I'm now realizing that we can all pronounce the names as seems good to us. Cool I apologize for making much ado about nothing! Hail Mr. Green

I recently re-read these books and surprised myself by switching to a soft G for Geraden. I tried out the soft G when I first saw "Geraden" and it stuck. Did the same for Artagel, but the hard G stuck with him. Also, Margonol picked up a hard G on this last re-read (I was traditionally a margin man).

Forget who said it, but I like the idea of pronouncing Myste as rhyming with "feisty"--but I don't that one woud stick in my head, either Razz

For those in the long E camp, would Nyle be NY-lee? Shocked

Hard "G's" for Artegel and Margonal, soft for Geraden.
