ZEF-er-een
ie-o-LAN-thee
ie-AN-theeAt least, that's how I would pronounce them upon viewing them. Considering the last two names are Greek, they'd most likely be ie-oh and ie-an instead of yo, ee-an or ee-oh.After some research, Ianthe seems to be officially pronounced as ie-an-thee. (https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/Ianthe)Iolanthe is from iole, which is pronounced ih-o-lee. This makes it sound like a soft yo-lee.
