Have you ever misread a villager's name and it becomes something weird?

I misread Ankha as 'Amoeba'

I used to misread Canberra as 'Canaberra'
I pronounced it Can-a-beruh, but then I saw a thread and I realized I have been saying it wrong that whole time. Now I pronouce it Can-bruh.

Also does anybody know how to pronouce Beardo? I think its either Bear-do or Beard-o. I pronouce it Beard-o cuz whenever I say Bear-do, it sounds like I am saying 'perro' which is dog in spanish

I continue to call Gaston "GAST-in" even though I know it's actually "gast-ON" xD
Speaking of Canberra, I thought it was Cranberra for the longest time

For Beau, some friends and I had a long conversation whether it's pronounce Beau (As in BEAUtiful)), BAY-ooh, or Boe (Which is the right one)... but I still call him/her "BEAU"tiful >< Force of habit

I'm still not sure why Roald is not Ronald.

I find there are quite a few characters you can pronounce different ways like Hans, Lyman, Genji etc.

I think Deirdre could be confusing.

It took me a while to find out how Mathilda's name was pronounced (I thought it was muh-thilda). I'm not sure how to pronounce Wolfgang's name; is it said like in English (wolf-gang) or like in German (volf-gahng, which I  usually say and it signals him)?

^ I since since his name in the English games was intended for American players, then it may be pronounced "wolf-gang". But "volf-gahng" sounds cool too.

But I have always pronounced it "Wolf-gang".

I always call Chevre "Chev-air" and Eunice "yoo-neece". Everyone says I say them wrong, but I like the way they sound.

"It took me a while to find out how Mathilda's name was pronounced (I thought it was muh-thilda)."
Wait, that's not how you say it? Guess I've been saying it wrong this whole time as well.

"You pronounce it Muh-til-da not Muh-thil-da "
I figured that out a month ago.
"^ I since since his name in the English games was intended for American players, then it may be pronounced "wolf-gang". But "volf-gahng" sounds cool too."
I called into the megaphone "volf-gahng" and he responded. I didn't have as much luck with "wolf-gang" if I remember correctly. Oh well, don't worry. I pronounce Roald as "ro-ahld" and I haven't seen him outside of the dream suite.

My boyfriend calls Bangle, Bengal. Which makes sense actually since she's a tiger.

I believe it is pronounced shev-ruh. It's French for "goat" and also it's a kind of goat cheese.

"It's actually pronounced Shev with a slight rr sound on the end. (I live in a french province) "
I thought it was more of like a softer r (as in European French)
