Hi dear 'Cole, so good to hear a voice from the past :)

Ioalanthe is pronounced as:

Ee-o-LAN-thy

Ee- is indeed as in "cheese"

-o is as in "opera"

-LAN is as in "land"

-th is kinda tricky: it is *not*pronounced as in "the" but as in "thick". Think Thylvethter lithping "Thufferin' thuccotash!" -- get the picture?

-y as in "pretty", which reminds me of the time you had posted a link you you picture a couple of years ago :)))

Cheers, Pavlos

P.S. Anneza's suspicion that teh Brits massacred the pronounciation of Iolanthe is spot-on :)
