Ok, well, since Ocarinas exist, I found it irresistible to look up the pronunciation a year back, and it turns out to be AH-kah-REE-nah (ŏk'ə-rē'nə).

On the the indefinites... >_>

Farore: FAH-roar
Nayru: NEIGH-roo
Kakariko: KAH-ka-REE-koh
Kokiri: koh-KEE-ree
Deku: DEH-koo
Vaati: VAY-TI, though I can't even remotely figure out which one sounds more accurate. Curse Nintendo and their double letters. >_>

I pronounce Vaati as: VAH-tee because the second vowel of the double makes the sound a long vowel.


Ocarina: AH-kah-reena
Farore: Fay-roar
Nayru: NEIGH-roo
Kakiriko: KAH-keeree-ko
Kokiri: Koh-KEE-ree
Deku: Day-Koo
Ganon/Ganondorf: GA (the 'a' sounds like that in 'at')-non[-dorph]

Cucco - COO-coo
Goron - gore-on

Up till Hyrule Trivia, I had always thought that Farore was Fayfore. I guess I'd completely abandoned her name, since the jewel was useless in the game. xD
