  Pronunciation Guide  

Most of the character names in Amazoness! are Greek in origin. Some names, such as Hippolyte and Cyrene, have more than one possible modern pronunciation, but here's a rough guide to how all of the names would sound in Ancient Greek. You can also click on the names to hear an audio guide to pronunciation courtesy of the lovely Voice of the Amazons, Tazzy.
