biktima din anak ko nnito.. ang simple simple na nga eh.. nicole (ni-cowl) name niya pero tinatawag siyang nicol ng madaming tao minsan pati yung lola niya ganun din tawag sakanya pag tinatama ko sasabihin sakin pareho lang yun..  :o


marami po kasi sa mga Pinoys ang iba ang pabigkas ng mga pangalan.. may nagre2reklamo pa nga po na bakit sobrang complicated ang pronounciation ng mga names ngayon ng babies..

my son's name naman is Nigel Andrei. We call him Nigel (nay-jel) which is a common name in UK and Australia. But my lola (his great grandmother) calls him "psssst.." wala nalang ako reklamo, matanda na eh. hehe

Most people say his name right, kahit security guard sa grocery nabasa ng tama yung birth cert niya nung naiwan ko dati pero yung iba "ni-jel" ang nasasabi. I correct them if they are people we'll encouter again, but if not, I dont bother correcting them.

Kung mahirap talaga and uncommon ang name na binigay natin siguro expect nalang natin that it really would be mispronounced. Else, we can always give a more simple name :)

sa baby ko din palaging mali-mali ang pronounce..  ;D

My son's name is Xian Allen (Zi-yan Allen) which is kung tutuusin medyo easy version pa compare sa ibang names ng mga baby ng ibang mommies dito but the thing is andami palagi nalilito like for instance

secretary ng pedia niya: mommy next na po si Zey-Ann  ;D

officemates ko: hello Syan!  ;D

kapitbahay namin: ay kalaki na ni Si-An!  ;D

most of the times kinokorek ko like sasabihin ko "Xian (Zi-yan) po" pero minsan hinahayaan ko na lang din,ime-mention ko na lang name ng anak ko para madinig nila ng tama  although lately wala ng masyadong nagkakamali..  :)

Hi mommy jo, same tayo... my daughter naman is VIAN (Vi-yan) madali naman basahin di ba? problem ulit ngayong pasukan baka BI-ANN nanaman tawag ng teacher at classmates niya, sabi ko sa daughter don't allow them to call her as such, dapat i-correct niya.

my eldest's name is often mispronounced ang simple na nga lang ng SEAN..they pronounced it as "shawn" but I like it (shan) so we decided na since we got all the first letters of his full name together, we call him SAM. ayun, maikli na nga lang kaso yung iba naman pinahaba nakakainis ginagawa naman siyang SAMUEL.. ano ba??! ayaw ng mahaba and ayaw dn ng maikli..

It's for this reason that I decided to name our daughter Isabella Patricia.Common but timeless names that will cause no trouble for misspelling or mispronunciation

as a teacher, it is our responsibility to pronounce the kid's names properly... that's why during the first meeting (first day of school) may roll call to check if we pronounce it right. Even in my college class, I usually do that... ako din kasi victim ng ganyan... my name is the German spelling(antonIette) , ang usual is French spelling(antoInette)...
   kung may mga incident ng mispronunciation sa school, ok lang to talk with the teacher and i corerct ang pronunciation.. and its her responsibility to tell the class the appropriate pronunciation of your child's name.  ;D

Mis-pronunciation of name is many type as when some one take your name as he/she make it nick or short because they feel it cute & pretty than it is acceptable. But when someone consciously mis-pronounced you name, that should be discouraged & make it stop further. :o

wow I totally can relate to this. what i do is I correct the mispronounciation almost all the time. but let it slide if the person is not a usual contact. even relatives can't always pronounce her name right. then again, chill out to all! we do love our kids' unique names - that's for sure.

JAYSEAN MARSHALL is his name.. (jey-shan-mar-shal) pero lagi yung mga tao iba2 ang tinatawag sa kanya.. paano q kaya sila ico2rrect kung kada itatama q sila, the next time na mkita nila c baby, mali prin ang pronunciation.. eto examples:

sa health center: jisin??

a friend: ang cute ng name "jey siee-yan"

hubby's mom: kmusta na si jayson?

hubby's mom again: ah jayshon?

hubby's mom again and again: jayshon michael ba kamo?

ang names ba ng baby nyo namimispronounce din? how do you deal with it kung kahit pilit mong icorrect ay yun at yun pdin ang nasasabi?


-wow, tama basa ko sa name ng baby mo..hndi naman mahirap ipronounce ah. bka kc matatanda yung mga bumabasa sa name..hindi sanay sa modern names.. :p 

sis, pangalan ko din mahirap i-pronounce..pati surname ko nung dalaga pa ko..as in!  ;D  ayoko na banggitin dito name ko kasi maraming malilito! ;D  In fairness maganda pangalan ko ha. thanks sa parents ko  ;D

Share ko din lang mga mommies!
Biktima din nito yung baby boy ko. His name is AARON (a-ron) XANDER (san-der).
most of the elderly  would pronounce it   A-A-RON  as in yung "matigas" na version.haha
meron din yung dating maid nung kapitbahay namin I-RON, ginawa pang plantsa anak ko!hehe
minsan naman ZAN-DER.
worst na narinig ko..
ALEXANDER.. di ko alam kung bulag siya or hehe  ;D
