NameHacks: Name Pronunciation Guide
We've been wondering how we could make it easier for people to pronounce names on the go. While you can always grab our app for iOS, you might be caught in an interaction you weren't prepared for. We brainstormed for a while, and came up with NameHacks: a pronunciation guide that can help you have the confidence of a native speaker!
We've prepared a series of infographics for our languages at NameShouts, including links to our extensive database to help you get a handle on the basics. You can check out the pronunciation guide in infographic form below.
FRENCH: Drop the "H!"
SPANISH: "J" to "H."
The "OS" that ends a lot of longer Greek names is actually pronounced with a soft "OSH," rounding out the name. So, for example, Alexopoulos sounds like AH-LAI-K-SHAW-PL-AW-SH.
GERMAN: Take a "V."
ITALIAN: Cino, Chino.
