There are different pronunciations for Morrigan so they're all correct actually LOL!

I say it: more-ih (like igloo)- gan (like can)

I know the correct pronunciation but I just can't get past saying:

sam-hane

Pagan fail over here.

LOL I say Fray-Uh as well.

Ya I have issues correcting myself with Samhain too LOL.

Pronounced Sow-En but I do catch myself quite often saying Sam-Hayne.

Steph's good at saying it correctly so whenever I hear her say it, it actually takes me a minute to figure out what she's talking about

DIE - on - EYE - sus
FRAY - uh

MOR - gun - that's a tricky one because it has so many different variants/spellings as well - Morgan, Morgaine, Morgayne, Morgana, Morrigan, I've even seen Morgause!

sam - AIN (I know it's wrong but I prefer it that way)

What about....Anubis?

I always just thought it was pronounced Sam-hain (exactly how it's spelt)

Generally, I pronounce everything the way it's spelt. Oops
