Harry Potter Pronunciations

I've decided that I'm going to pronounce "Hermione", "HER-mon-ee". That sounds the best. It's a bit like "harmony" and I could open up that first vowel just a bit. I went to school with twin girls named Melodie and Harmonie. Both of them kicked tremendous ass on the piano.

I'll keep a lookout for where she talks about this in The Goblet of Fire. I didn't think "her-mee-OWN" was right, but I didn't know what to do with all the extra vowels... =P I didn't like the way "her-my-OWN-knee" sounded either.

And it's slitherin' and kidditch. What else? HAY-grid and loo-PAN (I knew he was a werewolf as soon as they said his name on the train).
