Pronounce it just like the Saudi Arabian currency plus an -uh sound at the end. I know this, because I got 100% on my free enterprise final.

LOL I USED to pronounce it Reh-lee-ah ^^;

I first managed to read that as "Reh-lee-nah", and my brain went to a scary place.

I think I tried saying so many ways before I got it right. I don't think I made a terribly stupid mistake though.

I pronounce it both ways, just on different occasions.

To make it easy for my friends I say ‘Ree-la’, but any other time I pronounce it as ‘Ree-Ah-La’.

And for the record when I first got into all of this I used to call him ‘Ree-Lay’. It still don’t know where I got that from.

I pronounce him as 'Ree-al-ah'.

I would also go on to pronouce two random people as man and wife, but that's just random, stupid, and off-topic XD

I've always pronounced it REE-lah, while my step-sister pronounces it Ree-AH-la. We had a bunch of arguments on how to pronounce the name, and she always made fun of me for making Reala sound so girly x)

Don't worry, since there's no official pronunciation there's really no right or wrong. For now, that is :D JoD might change that.

I've always pronounced it Ree-ala. Maybe because I said it like that growing up, or maybe someone told me that way to pronounce it. :D

Pretty sure Prince and a few others noted it, but I first started out saying "Ray-al-uh" ... not exactly sure why, could be that it seems like the name breaks up into Re-ala instead of being "Real-a." Rayaluh kinda sounded more natural and fitting.. but hey, it's all in the interpretation of whomever is there with the game, no?

I pronounce it Ree-a-la aswell although i was tempted to choose other and simply put 'God' XD

I used to say "Ree-la" but, after hearing it on Dreamcast, started saying "Re-ala". To be honest, i like Reala better cause, as mentioned a few posts ago, it makes me think of "reality".

Ree-AL-uh.

I've always tied him in with "Reality", so I pronounce it like that.


I pronounce it that way for the same reason.

When I was younger, I used to pronounce his name Real-a, so that it sounded like I said real, then added an A to it. But, now I know better. :angry:

I used to pronounce it as Reh-la, as in relish. Now I pronounce it as Re-ala since it sounds an awful lot like reality, reality being the opposite of dreams.

uh... the way I pronounce it and other people pronounce it at my school is:

Rel-la, almost like saying "Realm"... but it's Real-a... the "a" is pronounced like... how the "a" in SEGA is being pronounced 0.o I hope that makes sense.... I never knew people pronounce Reala's name in different ways. 0.0

Ree-Ala. I kind of pronounce it like the name Al, not the syllable "ahl". I come from Boston, shut up.

I previously pronounced Reala as "Ree-la". Now that JoD is out, I'm used to pronouncing it as "Ree-Ah-Lah". It also sound better to me.

Ree-ah-la.

Heard it in Journey of Dreams -- and was saying it like that before I had even heard him speak. I don't think I could have pronounced it any other way...
