Well, I pronounced Re-ah-la. In the truth, I pronounce as I read in Portuguese. ;)

I've always said Ree-la. When I first fought him (back in preschool!) I thought he said, "Reala versus NiGHTS!" not, "There is no NiGHTS!"

I still say it after I heard it pronounced in JoD.

EDIT: Holy crap! I didn't notice how long ago the last post was!!

I've been saying it as Ree-al-lah for the longest. But lately, I've been saying the name so much now(cause I have to make his costume), I've slipped and said Ray-al-ah a couple of times. It sounds British when I say it. ^ ^;

I also call him Ree when I'm poking fun at him. XD

Well, I'm one of those dreaded people that started with Journey of Dreams. So I have always pronounced it, "Ree-al-ah."

Before JoD, I would switch between "Ree-ah-la" and "Ree-AA-la" (like the reality thing)... now I just say the JoD pronunciation.

Re-ah-la. Reminds me of the word 'reality.' Maybe he symbolizes the real world...and here we go and face-off with him.

Weird. We deal with fantasy characters and yet the siblings show fantasy and reality.

"There is no NiGHTS!" There is no fantasy, no illusion. There is only what lies before us. Also, I think he might be mad at his Sibling for that one Christmas party...or April Fools Day. You decide.

We beat Reala at Bellbridge (as well as other places, but...yeah). We face reality so that we may continue to grow and go forward. It takes a combination of the two to travel through life (I suppose). I ramble, yes. Tis in my nature. Tis also in my nature to be weird and point things out as they come to me.

As for the pronouncement, I just wish I had played NiD before JoD...

"Ree-ah-la".
My head nearly exploded when I first heard DiGi pronounce it "Real-a" o.O

(Just noticed I posted here. Ignore if you want~ )

Ree-ah-lah.

I look at his name from a English major point of view, not JoD(even though my NiGHTS fandom starts there). Ree-lah is the wrong pronunciation, because his name starts out as 'Rea'. There's no little symbol over the 'a' (sorry, i'm sick and can't think of the correct name for it), making it say Ree-lah. 'La' speaks for itself. You have to pronounce the words separately, Ree-ah-lah.

Sorry for my little English lesson, I can't help it. ^ ^; (strangles English classes)

It's interesting that so many people said "Ree-ah-la" even before JoD. I agree with Kamui that it's the lack of an accent mark.

I am currently learning French, so if you speak to me you'll probably hear me throw out some random French words just to get the practice in. I love video games, some being Tomb Raider, Sonic the Hedgehog, King of Fighters, Pokemon and Digimon.<br /><br />I love to talk to people and get to know them. If you want to talk to be, don't be shy. I love making new friends.
Ree-ah-lah. Which is pretty damn near Ree-ala, so I just chose that. lol.

I dislike when people call him Reel-a though. That's kind of odd to me, but it's their choice.
