Mac-Craigh is how I pronounce it and how I have always heard it pronounced.

Well, Maccrage... let's try and do it rationally.

Personally, I always say "ma Krag", though I doubt this is correct.


Firstly, the "Mac" part is pronounced, well, Mac. This is a common prefix in Scottish Names, so we know how that works.

Now, going by rules of the English Language, it has a hard A sound in the middle, meaning "Craig" pronounciation. Thus, "MacCraig" is the most likely pronounciation to be correct.

Except its spelled "Macragge".

Plus, its a planet covered in soaring snow-covered peaks, a rugged planet... and a Crag is a cliff...

"Ma-Crag" or "Mac-Crag" makes the most sense to me.

Alternatively, "Mac-Crog" or "Mac-Craag" (drawing out the low "A" sound, sounds kinda like "Macraug") sounds kinda cool too...

so what your saying is that oven cleaner can remove paint from plastic models? and after that, you take a toothbrush to your plastic model, and the paint just comes off?

This is the same as the old "Tier-an-ids" versus "Tie-ran-ids" pronunciation debate. It's just how you would like to say it.
