    Captain Dyne said he wasn't even going to try to pronounce it. Go for it!

    I think I've finally settled upon the the final enigmatic word I'll utter on my deathbed! ...now I need some sort of snowglobe from Hoth to complete the effect.

    Now that's a name I haven't heard in a long time. Poor dude, though he did go down to the greatest Sith Lord personally.

    I liked Capt. Dyne, too. He was a pretty cool character, even if he did die to Palpatine.

    Very old commercial with some attempts at naming secondary/tertiary characters:



    I was not aware you don't pronounce the "LOM" in 4-LOM.

    I've always pronounced it "Four-Ell-Oh-Em", not "For-lom".

    I always said Knee-enn Numb, until I read the second EGTC, which said it was pronounced "Nine Numb". And then the audio book said Knee-enn Nuhn-bah and I was so confused. But I refuse to say Nuhn-bah. It sounds stupid.

    Looking at the spelling, that makes more sense.
