Unintuitive pronunciations

added IPA, made into a table; I guessed on some of the pronunciations based on what was written before...
A lot of names around here aren't pronounced the way they look, but their referents are often too modest to correct you. So, this page is dedicated to collecting and disseminating the proper pronunciations of names that are often bungled. If someone has some IPA skills, they can make these official-looking with upside-down e's and that sort of thing. Anyway:
* Paul Reyns {| cellpadding= "4"| ||rhymes with : || IPA|-| Paul Reyns || "Maul Mayans" || [maɪənz] (or monosyllabic [maɪnz]?)|-* | Jason Kohn = || "Jason CONEcone"|| [koʊn]* |-| Adam Bloch = || "abomb lock" || [əˈdɑm blɑk]|-DOM Block"* | Emily Ente = || "twenty"Emily En|| [ˈɛnti]|-tee" * | Noemi= || "show me"Noeh|| [ˈnoʊmi] (or trisyllabic [ˈnoʊəˌmi]?)|-ME"* | Wege Auditorium = Weg-eee (rhymes with Keg- eee)|| "Peggy" || [ˈwɛgi]|}
