Interesting one really. Except you are a language student and well travelled it can be very difficult to pronouce other people's names correctly.
<br />I come from a family where no one has an english or biblical name. Even some fellow Nigerians don't get the pronounciation right, how much more "oyibo people". And I insist on being called by that name. So what I do? If I feel any genuine attempt to pronounce it correctly, then I'll forgive whatever I hear, (in the hope that it will get better).
<br />Some people just cannot be bothered to say other peoples' name right. That can't be right! My name's all of I've got. A brand by itself!! Imagine if Obama had struck off the Hussein in his name, he probably wouldn't have made it this far.
<br />Yes, there's much more to it than just a few letters. Please make an effort to pronounce it right.Last replied by Veros on Monday, 19 January 2009
