Where is it implied anywhere in the books that Jasnah is pronounced 'Yas-nah'? Or possibly a Q & A? I have to admit, I'm extremely disappointed if I've been saying wrong, and even more so knowing how difficult it would be to correct myself after all this time saying it with a 'J'.

I have to admit that I've always pronounced her name with a "J" and wasn't able to fine anything on Reddit or Theoryland that indicates otherwise. The first paragraph on this page was written long before my time.

Though Brandon doesn't really care about pronunciations, he apparently indicated at an unspecified signing that Jasnah is pronounced with the Greek or Hebrew "J": a "Y" sound. So, "YAHS-nah". Even so, in my mind, I'm still going to continue to pronounce her name with a hard "J".

Much to my own dismay, Jasnah is - in fact - pronounced as 'Yasna'.[1] Nevertheless, I will continue to pronounce her name with a 'J'. It's just the way I've read the Archive from the beginning and I'm a non-conformist, especially given an off-wikia reference, despite however 'truthful' it might be.
