I'm pretty sure this hasn't been asked; how do you pronounce Aimone?

Like Lady K, I'd also like to know how to pronounce Baudouin correctly.

Norwegianne uploaded a file a while ago, where you could hear all the norwegian names, also Maud, but unfortunately it is not there anymore.
It was really interesting, and some things are really different if you hear them, cannot be explained.

Does anyone know how to pronounce Prince Félix's name? With the accent I doubt its Fee-lix, but Fay-lix the way the é is pronounced in my French classes doesn't seem right either. 0-o

The link posted by Norwegianne works fine here! Thank you for your link Norwegianne! But it takes some time to download here. So far, in 10 minutes, I've only heard Harald, Sonja and Haakon Magnus. Slow computer here! Yupp!!

Not easy to be a foreigner trying to learn Norwegian!
