  1. This has been my most favorite part yet. I really liked Roseriet, Novavie, and Zoéline from before. This list has Fleurance, Isaloe, Mayreau and Romaïsa- all of which I knew the exact pronunciations for.

    1. Edit: Meant to say I WISH I new the exact pronunciations for them! Especially Fleurance...
