Henry writes to Corun as part of their continuing discussion on the
correct pronunciation of my name:
If I understood Ianthe's response, in spirit, we can pronounce the
name any way we see fit.
Truly, Ianthe must be a cosmopolitan sort of lady, and accustomed to
the well-meaning ignorance of foreigners. I will probably go with a
pronunciation of "hay - yoo", basically a wide interpretation of the
vowels with drastically softened consonants.
--Henry the Learned
I reply to the obviously overworked Chancellor Henry, deep amidst
catalog drafts for the upcoming University session:
By all means, you may pronounce my name "Hay-Yoo." Of course, if you
do, I celebrate your spirit of cross-cultural tolerance by pronouncing
your name "Ecki-Ecki-Ecki-Piyoo-Pitang".
Oh, and that's "Countess Hay-Yoo". I wouldn't want to anger Don
Fernando by omitting his gift of love, thereby denigrating his
accomplishment. He celebrates tolerance in his own way, pronouncing
my name "Moose."
