    Pronouncing Barrett

    Post by MaestroMaharg on Sun Aug 28, 2011 8:29 pm

    To be honest, I always thought that Barrett was pronounced: Ba-ray. Yeah, I know Ecstatic Then eventually I realized that it's pronounced Ba-ret (I think)

    Perhaps even more sad than the fact that I thought Barrett was pronounced Ba-ray, was that the only reason I suspected it was Ba-ret, is because of a character called Barrett in Deus Ex: Human Revolution...

    Anyone else pick up Deus Ex: Human Revolution?

    Also, has anyone else been pronouncing Barrett wrong? Ecstatic

    So you say it's pronounced ba-ray and not bar-ret? Gosh, this would be perfect for a "you're doing it wrong" line. Sad

    I often pronounce it "bar-red" and sometimes "bar-ret" now I don´t know if it's "bar-red", "bear-it", "bar-ray" or "bar-ret". This topic made me think like crazy...

    I had pronounced it Bar-et, since the spelling is quite to Barrell's.

    I just realized the sub-title had "And similarities in names", or something along those lines, and wrote nothing about it. Anways,getting to that; have you noticed that there's often two repeating letters in Legends names?

    Examples: Barett Volnutt Caskett Barelletc.
