Niou Pao-Hwa Lin
can someone give me a phonetic pronunciation of these names?

actually it would be a little easier if you had the chinese characters. :D
but Niou is like N-yo (not en-yo, but kinda like saying No, with a yo added in), second tone
Ming is exactly as it's spelled, also second tone.
Shyr - not sure on this one
Pao - this could be either Pao. the americanized way is "Pal"...the actual way is toned slightly different. it's like aPAOlogize (that's the best i can do for now). OR, it could be Bao, same thing as above but just with a B sound. both should be fourth tone.
Hwa - this one is also like it's spelled, however, without the actual character, i'm not sure if it's second tone or fourth tone (if i was to guess, i'd say second tone)
Lin - the correct way to say this is more like Ling (second tone)
hope that helps
