I don't think there was any group accepted way of referring to you for a while, mostly bad attempts at trying to make sense of it since it was so short. Eventually we settled on 'seh-guile'. Which was either because you told us it was that or because we can actually say that.

I think it's supposed to be like "Sigil"?
Personally, I always just say "Sea-gull", which seems to work just fine.

I am. "Van Bergen" is a real last name here. I just used my real name when I set up my Minecraft account (silly me).
AKA Rvan. That's R.van; you pronounce it as "Ar-van", not "R-van".

Well I never really thought about my name's pronunciation when I made it because before N@W I always used my real person name in game with friends. People always have their own opinions about how it's pronounced and I like to not favour any pronunciation and go along with people's initial opinion.

It's fun to hear what people settle on, I've had:
C-G
sigil
gile
ki-djeil
seagull
kuh-gell
kijell
si-jail

Hell yeah, name changes available! I have now changed my name from orionic_haps to orionicly.
Is anybody else up for a change?
