Internets, sometimes there is a conversation like this regarding The Shattering:
Internets: “Karen, how do I say Sione?”
Me (brought up in Pacific nation): “How it’s spelled.”
Internets: “Yes, thank you, very helpful.”
It’s actually very easy. See-OH-ney.
And if you would prefer audio assistance, I encourage you to watch this trailer for Sione’s Wedding.
I totally named Sione in homage to this film, which is a romantic buddy comedy, and one of my favourite movies of all time.
Warnings for dorkery and extreme charm! I believe it is marketed as Samoan Wedding overseas, so you might want to search for it under that name.
