Yis-raw-ale

Many people's names from Bible History are very familiar to most of us, however they would probably not be familiar, in the way that they are pronounced in English (or any of the many other languages that the Bible has been translated) to the people of the Scriptures that they represent. For example, the sound of Israel as it is spoken in English is quite different than the Yis-raw-ale of the original Hebrew. A few more examples of the English/Hebrew pronunciation difference:
