Charitomene = harry-toe-MENy
Xanthe = ksan-THEE (TH pronounced as Sylvester would pronounce thufferin' thuccotash)
Alastor = al-ASS-tor
Theano = the-ann-O (the pronounced again as Sylvester would. O as in Jackie 'O))
Halie = never heard of it as a Greek name
Danae = than-A-ee (th pronounced as in "though")
Astyanax = asti-ANN-ax
Andromache = andro-MA-hi
Polyxena = polly-KSE-ny
Priam = PREE-am-oss
Iason = ee-ASS-on
Aithre = ETH-ree (eth as in ethel)
