In the Dark Sun campaign setting, there are creatures called "Mekillot" - and I am having the hardest time trying to figure out how to pronounce their names! Is it hard, like "Me-Kill-Lot", or soft like "Me-Kill-Oh"? Or something else entirely?

I have not seen a pronunciation guide in this version of Dark Sun, and I do not have any of the older versions. What is the correct pronunciation?

This means if you don't have some source for its pronunciation, please don't answer with "what you say." – mxyzplk Dec 9 '15 at 3:11

I've always said Meh-kih-lott.

There's no pronunciation guide in my 2e materials.
