Re: Name Prenounciation ?

Poster: karen@georesearch.com (Karen Green)

As regards the pronounciation of the name "Myrddin":

The correct pronounciation (as far as I can tell) would be something on
the order of MURTH-in.  Not speaking as a herald or Welsh persona, just
as someone who's married to a guy who's both a herald and of Welsh
persona ;)

Also, my lord, you may be interested in reading
http://www.abdn.ac.uk/~his016/problem_name_myrddin.html -- it's an
article by Tangwystyl verch Morgant Glasvryn on the name "Myrddin" and
its origins.

the Academy of St. Gabriel):
