    Cnychwr = Kanickoor?

    I would look up how to pronounce Welsh / Gaelic / Celtic names. But that's my best guess. You wouldn't say the first soft "a" very noticeably - more like K'nickoor, the a sound helps get you from the c to the n.

    One thing to remember about Welsh: The vowels are A, I, E, U, O, W, and Y.

    W, when a vowel, corresponds to the English "oo." It could be the "oo" as in "pool" or the "oo" and in "book." However, since it is before an "r," it should be pronounced like in "pool."

    In Welsh, "ch" is is really one letter. It's pronounced like the "ch" in "Loch Ness Monster." Quite simple. I'm also 70% you can't start a syllable with it.

    "y," unless it is the last vowel, is pronounced like the "o" in "above"

    "c" and "n" should be two separate sounds.

    Therefore: (forgive my lack of knowledge of IPA)
    C'Nick-oor
    "ca-nick-oor"
    (keeping in mind that the "a" should hardly even be noticeable)

    As a final note, "c" should not be pronounced as "hard" as "ch." Basically, don't put as much effort into saying "c" as you would "ch." (Although, it's pretty much the same sound, just said shorter/weaker.)

    If a deaf INFP falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?

    It's just welsh so it doesn't matter.
