I've always assumed it was "KAR-uh."

It sounds, to me, more "alieny."
I say it Kah-ra
I guess that's more or less how I say it too, I just spelled it phonetically differently/wrong.

I've always thought it was pronouced similar to Sara. "Care-ah". Kah-Ra sounds too forced and fancy.

^ Thanks guys. Looks like both is right depending on your personal tastes; although since I'm sure we've seen the last of Supergirl, I should be able to save my Smallville related screams for SuperDouche.

For an episode called Supergirl, I thought she would be in it a lot more.

Re: Smallville 10x03 "Supergirl" - Discussion and Spoilers

^ Yes, it's only a logical thought process to have. I thought the scenes that Kara was in were fine for the most part (except for the scene where Clark shows her the Book of Rao portal and fails to explain what he used it for) but really this episode darted all over the place and relied heavily on the Ollie plot.

It's spelled "Kara Zor-El" but it's pronounced Linda Danvers
Isn't it just Kara El? From the house of El?
Your (or whoever came up with that naming convention) would make names ridiculously long.

no it's Kara Zor-El. The Zor of course meaning daughter of Zor-El.

Female Kryptonian's use their father's name as their surname. Males just have their House Name. So if Clark one day had a daughter and named her in the Kryptonian fashion she would be "Something" Kal-El. If he had a son it would be "Something"-El.

I'd pronounce Sara Sah-ra.
Do you mean pronouncing Kara like 'Sarah'?

^ Because that's how DC decided it would be long ago. Why do you care?

I don't. I was just wondering if that was a DC decree or something someone here came up with. No big deal

Re: Smallville 10x03 "Supergirl" - Discussion and Spoilers

I say Kaka Zor-El all the time, but I don't think I ever understood the implications.

Because I like to watch implications go critical, gotta ask about Superman's mother Lara?

Does the kryptonian nuptuals strip the femal of her fathers name and leave a vacuum in it's place in so that females have no identity, rather thanin human culture wher ethe female is 'goaded" into taking the malkes surname?

Will Lois Lane ever be Lois Kent or just plain Lois following the rules above?
