note to writers

Everyone likes cool names for things. It makes them sound exotic. Spectacular. Awesome.

But if your actors can't pronounce your names without audibly pausing in preparation? Not so spectacular. It might be okay if it's, say, a rarely-mentioned alien race. Then you could be excused. If your actor is supposedly naming *his own tribe*?

He's not going to be pausing. A king should know how to pronounce the name of his own people.

Make the pronounciation simpler.
