Are there any guides to pronunciation of the proper names in Idylls of the King

I am reading Tennyson's Idylls of the King and am bothered by not being sure in many cases how to pronounce the names of the characters. I couldn't find anything like an index of characters with a guide to pronunciation, either in printed editions of the book or in web pages about it. Also checked for such an index in a few editions of Mallory's Le Morte d'Arthur, because it deals with the same set of legendary Arthurian characters, but without luck.
