I'm sure it wasn't meant to sound as such, just based off of the spelling, but I always read it as "Meg-lynne". No rhyme or reason for it really, it's just what my brain made it when it read it. Every now and then it would be "Meg-lan", but, it was very rare. I should say it's very rare, since these are books I still re-read.

I always pronounced it "May-glynn", only because of the word neighbour with it's ei together producing that sound

I've been really tempted while writing to just say "Some weird guy I'll name later #1" followed by "Some weird guy I'll name later #2".


And I always pronounced it Meeg-lyn in my head.

I pronounce it "Mey-glan" (as in gland).

It's still fun to see how so many people can all come up with a completely unique way to read the same letters on the page.
