Jan182018: Pronouncing Zeynel’s Name

“How does one properly pronounce Zeynel’s name? And do you accept fanart of the silly/sweet variety?”

Asked by kyriea

The original pronunciation in Turkish is Zain-el, like how you say Zayn Malik’s name, just with the ‘-el’ at the back. I personally pronounce it as Zey-nell (Zey, as how a cartoon would imagine a Frenchman will pronounce ‘they’, and Nell as in Nellie), and that’s how I imagine all the English speaking characters in the comic would say his name. Both are correct in regards to him.

AND YES OF COURSE I DO, I WILL LOVE AND APPRECIATE IT SO MUCH.
