My new name is pronounced "Error."
The QM is silent because I can't figure out what to make it stand for. 'Twas supposed to be "Question Mark" but "Quantum Mechanics" has a nice ring to it.

For those of you who don't know, my old name was {???} and was pronounced...well, I'll let you guys give it a try ;) I'm sure one of you'll get it.

Take a guess at mine. I'm actually quite curious what you guys think it sounds like.

"dee-jay-brez-lin"

im honestly not sure how to pronounce mine. either "schmitt-d" as two separated things or "schmitt-ed" like past tense schmitt

Ding, you even got the Z part right. I pronounce your name like "schmitt-d," with like a weird "td" at the end of it, all one syllable.

I've always pronounced mine separately as "dee-masters" although I guess it could be like schmittd and have the d become part of it

Hardly a bump and it's a fun thread so I don't feel so bad about it.
Mine is pronounced like you would expect:
mar(as in martha, or art)-joe
And I think Brian in pig latin would be ianbray, not rianbay?

Zhyrek, I always pronounced your name as one syllable, kind of leaving out the y. Zhreck. Kind of like Shrek, but with the proper zh sound. ;)
And as for uuuiiiooop, I think I pronounced it something like ooo-eee-ooop, not really three syllables but kind of one drawn out vowel sound. Or something weird like that.
And Error, is it just a coincidence that {???} is the BBCode for the confused smiley if you switch the brackets with colons? Or is it actually pronounced as Confused?
