I can't believe this doesn't exist yet. At least for me, I have had long hours of debates with friends on how to correctly pronounce character names from the cosmere. 

Is it Shal-lan or Sha-len?

Is it A-doll-in or A-dole-in?

How do you guys pronounce characters in the cosmere?

Maybe it doesn't exist to spare everyone from the explosions these arguments will cause :P 

Sha-len 

A-da-lin (take it or leave it)

Aa-muh-ram

Ren-uh-rin

Say-zed

Yahs-nuh 

And I think I'm the only person in the history of the cosmere to do this, but Mohsh. One syllable. No Moh-ash for me.

My dad says Mohsh for some reason as well. I just call him Vyre, rhyming with Fire. :P 

Kal-a-din

Rock. (nobody better be different for this one. :D)

Sa-zed.

The only reason I say it with a Y is because I heard Brandon say it that way. :P

I pronounced everything differently until I listened in with my dad when he was listening to the cosmere books in audiobook format.

Now I say:
A-dole-in
Shal-lan
Re-nar-in
Tee-en
Yaz-nah
Moe-ash

I despise the Thaylen names when it comes to pronunciations. How am I supposed to say Ym? There's no storming vowels!

Y(ee)m

or Y'm (like (ee)m but Y and less "ee"s. so like EE but e. like a short long ee. does this make any sense? more like e/i then ee?

For me Amaram is [uh-mar-am] yes yes I know, I'm wrong. The first time I read his name I read it [A-muh-ram] but I thought that was stupid and that no one else would read it like that so I convinced myself it was Uh-mar-am and its to late to go back.

I horribly mispronounce almost all of the Stormlight names, if I’m being honest. I think the only major characters I got right were Dalinar and Kaladin.

Aa - though - lin (Adolin) 

Ray - na - rin (Renarin) 

Kaala - din (Kaladin) 

Shal - lan (Shallan) 

Uma - rum (Amaram)

Jaz - nuh (Jasnah) 

Dali - naar (Dalinar)

Nav - vani (Navani)

El - ho - kar (Elhokar)

Yum (Ym) 

Shpren (spren) 

Sa - zed (Sazed) 

Kel - seer (Kelsier)

Veen (Vin) 

Used to say Sa - Reen, now I say Sa - Renée (Sarene)

I pronounce Adonalsium like I was going to say Adonai but changed my mind midway into saying calcium

 

Shouldn't this be in Cosmere or Brandon Sanderson Discussion? Why is it in Forum Games?

Shallan is Sha-lawn (rhymes with salon)

Jasnah is Yaz-nuh

Kaladin is Kal-a-din (rhymes with paladin)

Sarene is Sah-reen

Dalinar is Dal-eh-nar

Adolin is Ah-doh-lin

Renarin is Reh-nar-in

Elhokar is Ell-o-car

Vin is Vin

Kelsier is Kel-si-er (but said very fast so it’s more like Kel-seyr)

Sazed used to be one syllable for me, but I changed my ways and called him Say-zed now

Adonalsium is Add-o-nal-zee-um

Chasmfeinds are just trying to be our friends, but they don't know how! Honestly how could we be so rude stealing their hearts when all they want is our love.
