Asking someone how they pronounce their own name is recommended as there can be a range of dialectical or preferential pronunciations. However, even that can be problematic if the speaker uses sounds or intonation patterns from a language that you are unfamiliar with, which makes it easy to mishear or mispronounce what was spoken. This page hopes to provide some help in pronouncing names that you might be unfamiliar with.
