This is kind of stupid, but my cousin and I can never agree how to pronounce these names. There are probably other ways, but these are our personal opinions. Aside from how Branderson says them, what do you guys think?

I think Rock would be OK with any of the above.  We airsick lowlanders are incapable of proper speech after all.

Please record a soundbite of you saying that and then post it.

For 1 and 2, neither of those. In my head they've always been Shall-an and Sa-day-chull (with the second and third run together). For 3, I always immediatley think of Humuhumunukunukuapua'a when I see his full name. No doubt because I'm an airsick lowlander.

EDIT: Oh wow, the board's auto-correct feature decided it didn't like the syllable I use for the end of Sadeas' name so it replaced it with another one that's perfectly appropriate for him. :lol:

Brandon says Shallan closet to the second one (I asked him at a signing) IIRC he also said KAL-a-din and se-ZETH. I (unintentionally) have been saying Sadeas as two syllables with a very similar sound to sadist
