Exactly. Plus, that self-deprecation is unwarranted on account of we're all beautiful and young and not getting any older at all, you guys.

Right, Mr Chekhov?

A note on pronunciation: I've changed any names ending in double Fs to Vs in the title and magic window because that transliteration is so much more common. I hope that's okay.

Also, it's my (vague) understanding that in Russian names the emphasis is usually on the penultimate syllable, thus the pronunciation of Ivanov in the MW . If anybody knows better, please correct me!

Great! In that case I'll put you down for Zinaida, okay?

I have to say the name of LEBEDIEV. My instinct is to say: le BAYD yeff . Does that sound OK, or does anyone know authoritatively? (I'd like to be consistent with what others are saying.)

I can't find anything definitive, but your suggestion feels right to me, Bruce. Definitely 'diev' is one syllable.

Can I claim the part of the third guest? Also, as far as I can see there don't seem to be any lines for the fourth guest, so I wondered if his or her inclusion is actually needed here or if I am just missing something.

Of course. Thanks very much!

No, you're right - just silly mistake on my part. Elizabeth, as and when you have a minute, would you mind deleting Fourth Guest from the MW, please?

May I read Avdotia, if she is still available?

Well, based, as discussed above, on my own entirely subjective guesstimate, I'd go with:
Av-DOTE-ya Naza-ROV-na.

I think an acceptable interim strategy would be to go with my semi-informed assumptions until such time as
a) someone who really knows what they're talking about shows up.
or
b) you finish your recording, thus making your preferred pronunciation official for the purposes of this project.

I'll go post a thread right now in Help Wanted appealing for pronunciation help, which I should have done to begin with. In the event no one can help, I'll play the Supreme Authority and take the blame for any mistakes. Okay?

I really didn't expect this much movement this soon. Thanks, everyone!
