Yup.
Sometimes, even after I learn the correct way to pronounce it, I still say it wrong because now I relate the character to the incorrectly pronounced name. lol

Yep. And it's not limited to made-up names in sci-fi or fantasy books, either. I have a friend who to this day persists in pronouncing Hermione Granger's name "her-me-own".

Your friend sounds like me. That character will always be her-moyne to me. Ha!

Haha! If only three whole books hadn't gone by before Rowling realized she needed to school us Americans on the proper pronunciation!
