another pronunciation question

I'm reading a book right now- A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin. It's a really awesome fantasy book, and I reccommend it to any fantasy lovers out there. Anyway- when I read books that have difficult to pronounce names, I generally don't spend much time trying to figure out how they should be pronounced; instead I just go with the first pronunciation that comes to mind. It makes it easier for me to read.

So here are some names/proper nouns from my book- how would you pronounce them? (or if anyone can figure out the proper pronunciation, that would be nice too)

Daenerys
Tyrion
Cersei
Viserys
Dothraki
Aerys



Daenerys- Duh nare es
Tyrion- Tie run
Cersei- Sare see
Viserys- Viss er ess
Dothraki- Doth ra cay (cay- sounds like dye)
Aerys- Air ess


What names in literature have you grossly mispronounced until you found out how it was really said? For me, it was Hermione in Harry Potter. For about a year I pronounced her name Her my own.
