Chelyabinsk is city. Ch-eliya-binsk. I think all letters you can read in way they pronouncate. Sorry, I didn't help.  :-[
Chel- ya- Bingsk..That's how I read it (",).

Ortino?

It seems simple words can be pronounced so many ways!

Um um...

Does the pronunciation Ta-sha-na sound good?
I said this before on Tatiana's name thread and I was cleared-out her name is pronounced as Tat-ya-na.
I still call Tatiana Ta-sha-na. I really can't avoid it.

You may call her as you wish, but itīs not the correct pronunciation. Tatyana is the most precise description of how the name would sound. Maybe you could watch Romanovy - Ventsenosnaya semya - there you can hear all the names in Russian.

Agreed, Ally. Or watch Russian documenatries, you'll hear 'Tatyana'.

I even heard in one show a person pronounced Tatiana as tatyana.

Well, I must practice speaking it everyday so that I'll get accustomed.

Ingrid Alexie, I pronounce it wrong too. I say Tat-e-anna. I keep forgeting that it's really Tat-yana.

As for your latest post, I need help with that too. It's hard for me to say her last name.

I pronounce Mathilde as Mathil-de. I also think it's pronounced as ma-thild. The last name, no idea about that.

I pronounce Mathilde as Mat-il-ide. I don't think it's the right pronounciation, though.

Is Romanov in Russian really pronounced as Ro-manoff?
Where's the v sound? I found this here. I just need a clarification.

"V" is like "F" there as the sound is breath consolant.
