Pronounce this name

Post by jmatt »

Curious as to how forum members think Gilad Anni-Padda's first name is pronounced. Just for fun.

I've been reading "GEE-Lad" for years. Will be difficult to read the name any other way now.

You know.. now that I think of this.. every time I ask a comic creator about the pronunciation of a character's name.. they have all just responded something like.. "however you want". :lol: :?
