I do not in any way understand why this is so hard for people. WHY?! If I am ever unsure of a person’s pronunciation when I meet them, I just ask. “Remind me how to say your name again?” I have never, ever had someone react badly, and it’s not embarrassing for me to ask. It’s important. It’s their name. The fact that professional sportscasters who are paid to talk about these athletes can’t bother to sit there for five minutes and learn how to pronounce something properly is ridiculous and kind of gross.
