#213501 - 12/08/13 06:21 PM New name, but why can't people pronounce it?
One of my friends released a game a while ago but has only recently decided to change its name. The new name he picked, 'Ainion', didn't sit well with myself as I found it difficult to pronounce, so I thought I would run a test and ask a group of random people during the day how they would say it. Interestingly, all but two people pronounced it differently!
So I thought I would look a little more into this (as my friend is sure it's a suitable name) and decided I'd turn to you guys! My question is quite simple; Why can't people from the same English-speaking region pronounce Ainion consistently?
Thanks to you all!
