Talk:List of Smallville Pairing Names

How are the SV portmanteau pairing names pronounced? (or do they only exist in writing?) I.e. considering how "Chloe" is pronounced in English "Chlana" wouldn't really sound different from "Clana", would it? Or is it said like "Shlana"? Or with a distinct "ch" sound like in the Scottish "loch"? (I think most English speakers have trouble with that ch-sound though.)--Ratcreature 11:06, 20 February 2009 (UTC)

Heh, I have often wondered about that myself! I've never seen anyone mention pronunciation, but yeah, Chlana and Chlex and Chlark should sound the same, one would expect. Don't know if there's ever been any sort of question in fandom about this, maybe at a con? I haven't had much opportunity to discuss SV in person; "Clex" is the only portmanteau I've regularly verbalized... --Xparrot 12:39, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
