Apparently the proper way to pronounce it when used as a name is "Sinjin."

Well that's dumb.
>>
>>77863991
It's not a common name, so a lot of people have made that same mistake, even in official media.
>>
>>77863991
That's part of the reason his name is just John in some versions. They don't know how it's meant to be pronounced and think "Saint John" is a cumbersome name so they just shorten it to John.

Arabfag here. Is the name written anywhere in Arabic letters? Right now there could be a few ways to pronounce it depending on what letters the vowels are supposed to correspond to and whether or not that's one of the weird spellings where s = sh.
>>
>>77864516
it's just Head of the Demon translated
>>
>>77864516
"رأس الغول" according to wiki
>>
>>77863869
You do know that is done on purpose right? To show that she doesn't give a fuck what her name is, because she likes "Kiera" better.
>>
>>77864516
Just kidding. Google is a magical thing.

The spelling is رأس الغول

This is written from right to left. The straight line with the squiggly on top? That's the a sound. The squiggly means it's an aa sound, as in bat. The s is the kind of butt looking letter. In Arabic, this letter is the s sound, like at the end of class. Now, if the creator did intend the name to be pronounced raa-SH, then the name needed to be spelled with the version of this letter that had three dots on top. So by the Arabic spelling, the first name is pronounced r(aa)-s. Pretend like you're trying to say rat, pause for just a moment before the t sound, and say the s sound instead.

I think we've heard enough terrorist names to know how to pronunce the al at this point.

The gh sound is not just a g sound. It's the gh sound that sounds like you're coughing something up. I don't know how to quite describe it, but just copy and paste the circle with one dot on top of it, paste into YouTube, and watch a pronunciation video. There's a different letter for the G sound, so this isn't really disputable. The giant comma looking letter is oo, and then the last letter is just l. So the last name is aal-GHool. Just uh, pretend you're trying to cough something up.
