I noticed that in most of the codices, Falon'Din and Fen'Harel had the second part of their names capitalized, while Elgar'nan and Ghilan'nain do not. Any thoughts on this? Maybe it's stress on the syllable? Meanwhile, their in-game pronunciations seem to vary too, from Merrill to Kenric to Morrigan. Speaking of pronunciation, when Solas says "Ar lath ma, vhenan" it really sounds like "Ar lath, ma vhenan." I'm probably picky but these details bother me. :(
Trust me, it bugs me too. If I recall correctly (though I’d want to go back and record the audio to be sure), Solas and the Dalish Inquisitor both pronounce Ghilan’nain differently and there is almost zero consistency when it comes to the pronunciation of Elvish between the different characters who speak it. It’s a relatively minor gripe I’ve made (quietly, to myself) that probably results from a lack of uniformity in coaching the VAs into particular pronunciations.
For the record, I pronounce Fen’Harel the same way Morrigan does. The way Kenric and Merrill say it sets my teeth on edge a bit, tbh.
As for capitalization - I can’t really figure that one out. It’s made all the more confusing that the subtitles don’t always capitalize their names that way.
My first instinct would be to say that their two names/titles are phrases condensed into single words (Falon’Din = Friend + the Dead = Friend of the Dead // Fen’Harel = Wolf + Traitor/Rebel/Trickster) and yet Elgar’nan is a phrase as well (Spirit + Vengeance) and doesn’t get dual-capitalization.
