It would be easier if you would take the time to spell out your heading, but I read your posting to see what it was about, so perhaps it is not a bad idea...

Anyway, I can tell you about how the letters would sound in Ancient Greek, though not their stresses.

Megaera would probobly have been pronounced [mɛgaira] and Tisiphone [tisiphɔnɛ:] or [tisiphɔne:], depending on the dialect.

I hope you can read my IPA transilteration, but I find it rather clumsy to attempt to render these things using our irregular English typography.
