I’ve lived and worked in different countries, and each time I’ve met people whose names were unfamiliar to me.
That’s all right! That means I was in an environment where I could learn more!
I always try to make an effort to pronounce someone’s name correctly, but sometimes it can be a bit awkward, and that’s OK, too.
I’m not offended if my name is not pronounced correctly – but it feels nice when it is.
For this reason I’ve created this page, so you can learn to pronounce my name, if so you wish :)
The easy way
Try to pronounce the following as you would in English: Andraash Jitco
The better way!
There’s a thing called the IPA – International Phonetic Alphabet.
The IPA reader website can “read my name aloud”. After clicking the links below, I recommend selecting the voice model “Joanna” from the dropdown.
My first name: András
My family name: Zsitko
Thanks for making the effort of pronouncing my name correctly, I appreciate it!
