D'ni names

The following is a list of D'ni names that appear in the Myst games and novels. Parentheses enclose the D'ni originals (in OTS). Where necessary, sources are given in italics. Stress is marked with an acute accent when known.

Note that for many of these names the D'ni original is unknown, and if they were taken to be direct transliterations, would yield bizarre or impossible pronunciations.
