    I can help with some, but with the others i'm as much in the dark as you are.

    Mille fleur = meal-flurr

    D'uccle I can't help you with LOL

    Andalusian is pronounced an-da-loo-see-an

    Minorca is just as it looks - min-or-cah

    Sumatra = soo-mah-trah

    Toulouse = too-lose

    Hova = hover

    Brinsea = brin-see

    Yokohama = yo-ko-harma

    Orloff is just as it looks

    Amherst = am-hurst

    Aseel = a-seal LOL

    Narragansett = na-ra-gan-sit

    Chantecler = shan-ti-clear

    Well, this is how I say some of them...You have to take my Maine accent into account... There's probably a lot more "R" in my pronunciation. [​IMG]

    Lakenvelders...Lake-in-val-durs
    Mille Fleur... Mill-Flurr, probably if it were pronounced properly in French, it would read Me-Flu...lol
    D'uccle... Dee-yuck-el
