Having brought it up in what I wrote about issue #34, I remembered my past pronunciation guide died with my old website. I'll get something more permanent up on my StarWars.com blog, but here are a few pronunciations off the top of my head. They're how I hear them — although, of course, note that none of these characters has appeared in an audio medium to date, so while I might spell something "Alexander Luxury-Yacht", you're welcome to pronounce it as "Throatwarbler Mangrove":
Zayne Carrick: ZAYN KAYR-rick
Raana Tey: RAH-nah TAY
Haazen: HAH-zen (yes, not the same as HAYZE)
Haydel Goravvus: HAY-del guh-RA-vus
Post if you need others. Sorry, I don't know how to do schwas and other phonetic type — and apologies if this is at variance with anything I've posted before (which, again, is gone anyway now). But that's close enough...
