How do you pronounce...?

The following are the names of characters from "Baldur's Gate" - a game that is known worldwide. The differences in spelling between different language versions are minimal - so far, I've only seen Amelyssan spelled differently elsewhere.

I'm wondering, how do you pronounce the names. Please state what country are you from and whether you use International (English) version, or your local one.
