I picked up the ID "Cei" for online use as my signature looks exactly like that. However I find it's often taken in many games (except PSN!), so I tag on the first letter of my surname, resulting in:
Yes, silent h and a hard c. Get over it?

Don't worry. people still think it's funny to say "Okay, Kei!" to me when they first meet me, as if I've never heard it before in my 33 years and it's the very height of comedy.
Here's a clue- it's not, and instead makes me want to either bite out your oesophagus or sigh, walk away and never speak to you ever again depending on what kind of mood I'm in,

Gorncaptain, or gorn for short. pronounce it however you like.
it came from that episode of star trek, i think its called "arena" where Kirk fights the lizard monster with a homemade bazooka, it's as silly as it sounds

Apparently even Mumble says my username correctly. Don't think it's possible to mispronounce it unless you're really trying.
Still love Mumble's "Dominic Hughes" (Dominicus).

As for Kreggurree, it comes from my year living in Texas. My name is Craig but Texans pronounce it K-r-air-g like Greg which led to Kreggurree somehow via Gregory. The friend that coined it wanted to spell it Craigory but this was not realised until after the group had settled on spelling it Kreggurree.
So it is pronounced Kreg-gu (like short oo)-ree and I respond to Kreg because you just sound like one of my Texan friends saying my name.

I've heard lots of variations on mine (ArtekusBardane in game). I don't particularly mind. Probably quicker just to call me Bardane.
Fun fact, normally I would call a profile after my main handle (over <- yonder), but when I signed up to PS2 for some reason I was being an idiot. Only one person I've seen has ever gotten the reference, which is a very obscure character in the Warhammer 40000 universe. Soon as a name change option pops up, it'll change.I am on the Steemz

T-W-Christine (as if you needed me to say that..), but everyone just says "Christine" because it makes more sense.
I have to say, there's a few names I was saying wrong in my head. I admit I'm looking forward to seeing how to say LaKroy because I'm almost POSITIVE I'm saying it wrong. Perhaps because I live in a French area, but I'm thinking La-K and then "roy" in the French way.

mrpier - mr as in mister and pier as in the long things that sticks out into the sea, not pierre. Pier is a sort of translation of my norwegian first name. Also responds to just pier.

My name is derived from "qwertzuiop" - the first row of the German keyboard. I used to call myself like this a couple of years ago. Sometimes I needed to add a "2" at the end because the firmer was already taken. (Note: I am very uncreative, as you may have noticed)
Over the time I shortened this to qwer, doubled the e and finally replaced it by 3s. If you would pronounce "qwer" in a really German way (please don't) it would sound like the German word "quer", which means something like "across". This is just a coincidence though.
For pronounciation: I've very rarely noticed my name spoken wrong, but I looked for the appropriate IPA anyway (I hope it is roughtly what I imagine it to be^^): kʊɜr
Actually I just found out that "queer" already does have a meaning in the English language... I guess I need another name for the next game I start to play :P
