First of all, I think the worst thing about Bionicle names was the similarities between them, not the pronunciation. Seriously, Onua and Onewa? Vahi, Rahi, Rakshi, Vaki? Vakama and Nokama? Gali and Hali? Makuta and Muaka? Matoro and Matoran? Bohrok and Bara(h?)g? Malum and Melum? And why is EVERY ISLAND named NUI?
But, regarding the topic at hand, I pronounced Onua and Onewa the same, but I pronounced Onewa with more focus on the hard U sound. I pronounced Kane- Ra as cane-ra, Hau as haU, with a hard U and the A as an soft O.
@Azani, I thought it was Vee-zon. Isn't that how they say it in the ad?
