Ayeri lacks [f] for some strange aesthetic reason. Would you mind "Pilim" then? In a dialect and maybe-candidate for a daugherlang of Ayeri you could even be "Pilip". In Standard Ayeri as it is ATM, when the name should decline for something, it would also be "Pilip...". Recently I decided against sticking case endings to names, though. I thought I'd use [v] because this is the closest thing to [f] that exists.

... which is actually pronounced [ju:] in Britain and just [u:] in the US. It's not a diphthong -- at least not to my Cherman-biast ears: ["nju:tn=]. Carsten -- Edatamanon le matahanarà benenoea ena 15-A7-58-12-2-1-44 ena Curan Tertanyan. »
