Raye asks a name pronunciation question. I have found that the only person who really knows is the name holder. Usually a person with a name with 2 (or more) legitimate pronunciations will respond to any of them the first time you talk to them and only correct you if it really matters.

Subject: [LMB] Pronunciation of Lady Alys' name

... Does anyone have a definitive answer?
I've been pronouncing it "Al-leez" but in a recent RL discussion, the fellow Bujold fan I was talking with referred to her as "Al-lis".
Does anyone know which is right?
