Maddock is pronounced just like it's written: mad-DOCK (dock like "doctor"). Keelan
, I would think, is KEE-lin, because Caoilfhionn
's pronounced that way (Irish spellings are quite different from English spellings).
could be a-LEE-na, a-LIN-a, or a-LYE-na. Personally, I much prefer the first pronunciation. Especially if you're going to use Alina
as a short form of Adelina
or something like that.
