It's driving me nuts, every time I look I can't help seeing it as someones name: "Mirri Allan"

I've tried to google it but no luck, there just doesn't seem to be a lot of info on Mirialans in general.

I'm going to guess...

Me-Re-Ah-Lawn

Let me know if it's right or not, I had the same feeling you did bro.

I've been wondering this too. I keep wanting to see the name "Maria" in there.

My final guess though was:

MEER-ee-ah-lan

There is actually a quest NPC on Hutta for IA/BH that specifically says the specie's name:

Meer-ee-Al-an

So, you saying it like someone's name in your OP, would actually be closer to the correct pronunciation.
The Valakut Legacy- The Shadowlands
Hessero 55 Operative (Concealment now and forever)
Ma'ssar'tau 35 Gunslinger (Boom baby)

I would vote for this. It sounds right.

Cool. Thanks for the heads up, I was going to give a BH a try so looking forward to this.
