How Is Her Name Pronounced?

Elodie.

Is it [ eloe-dye ]?

Or [ eloh-dee ] instead?

Luckily we have no voice acting so you can pronounce it however you like! :)

The name is French originally, so it probably comes out a bit like AY-lo-DEE

But Americanised, I see it being said ELL-uh-dee, like 'melody' without the m.

I tend to say it eh-LO-dee when talking to Spiky, although I'm pretty sure that's wrong by the standards of anyone with the name!

Yeah, just to add on, before I saw this topic, I asked my friend who speaks French, and she says it'd be like:
Eh-loh-dee-eh
with the last eh being a short sound.

I still read it like Hanako says though, and I know for an Americanized version according to naming sites that is a correct way as well.
