This does have an english bias sadly but I guess that this is a mostly english speaking site and this is a way to broaden some of our scopes.

Jim, like Gym

Denney, like De-knee

Seriously, when you are typing a message to someone, why is the way you say the name important. Since you did not add your phone number, I assume you do not intent to be speaking with anyone. For many nationalities, you need different fonts to display the proper characters that show how to pronounce the letters in their alphabet.

I understand that being raised speaking English makes it almost impossible for me to pronounce some names and words from other parts of the world, just as pepole from other parts of the world have a hard time with the english language. If you don't belive this to be true, have one of your latin friends pronounce my first name.


When all you have is a nail, everything looks like a hammer...
