This may sound like a stupid question, but since i've never heard the name namine before kingdom hearts, I was wondering how to pronounce it. Is it said NA-MEE-NAY, NA-MEEN, NAY-MEEN, or something that i haven't thought of. Anyone who is good with japanese, or japanese names please help me.

this may sound stupid, but I thought it was "Na-mine", then my mom took one look at her name and said it was "Na-my-nay" so now I feel stupid......so there.( OFF TOPIC: just so you know, I have a sore throat, and that's why I'm typing this way. I'm really quite positive....sorta.)

Namine... Na-mee-nay. I thought it was Na-mee-nay the whole time but I wasn't really sure.

So names can be homosexual now? ^_~

Anyway. You're right, her name is pronounced Na-me-nay. This is true not only because of the é in her name, but also because the Japanese spell her name simply as Namine. They don't NEED the accent because the Japanese vowel "e" is always pronounced "eh" or "ei" or "ay", whichever, they all sound the same anyway. The Japanese pronounce her name Na-mi-ne, and since the vowels a and e are always ah and eh/ay, they added the é for us English players to give us a distinction. ^^;
