I was just wondering, when you were younger, did you pronounce 'Tomb Raider' incorrectly.

I used to call it 'Toon Naider.'

Never mispronounced it... it's not a particularly arcane pair of words.

I find more humour in listening to Americans trying to pronounce "Laura"

Everyone says I pronounce Lara wrong. I don't pronounce it Laura, but rather how it is spelled.

Yeah, I think I used to say Tomb like the name Tom. :D I didn't know what a tomb was. But learned it quite quickly after playing it. I was just a kid and hadn't learned English for that long.

There's nothing hard about those two words for someone to pronounce it the wrong way, in my opinion. I didn't.

All the Gremans do that too, Tom with a "b" at the end.
I do my best to reform them.... meh.
And I never said it wrong. Lara? Sure I can say that too-
it is my daughter's name!;)

Cool! :D Is that influenced by Tomb Raider, or do you just really like the name?

Not really, although when I was little my speech was very enunciated, so it would've been something like "Tooom Ray-der!" :D

Yeah I don't believe that either, especially when Lara is a BRITISH character.

She is named after LC!:)
Who could be a better role model?
Intelligent, dangerous, in control....

My Grand Father's name (and my middle name)
is Lawrence, and my best G/F (kinda, hehe) is
named Larissa, so you could rationalize.

But she is actually named after our TR!:)

I agree. I first pronounced it when I saw the cover. So, I first read it, then said it.
