Have you ever wondered how to pronounce your favorite athlete’s name? Or maybe you just want to know how to pronounce a musician’s, actor’s, or politician’s name? Well the Name Engine will do just that for you!
The best way, well maybe the quickest way, to try this out is to pick one of the names on the homepage under Names in the News. Just click on a name, and it will show you that name’s entry. Click the microphone button to hear it pronounced.
You can also browse the names by Sport, Entertainment, Politics, Place, Companies/Brands, and Newsmakers. Or you can use the search field to look up the name you want to know how to pronounce.
If you can’t find a name you’re looking for you can suggest it to the site by clicking their e-mail link on the home page. This will open up your e-mail program (Outlook, Incredimail, etc.) and a blank e-mail so that you can send it off. For those of you like me who don’t use a program, right click the e-mail link and select: copy e-mail address. Then go log in to your web-based mail, start a new e-mail, and then paste it into the address line.
It’s pretty cool to hear how some of these names are supposed to sound. Check it out today!
