Have you seen the movie, Leap Year? Anna goes into an Irish Pub wanting to use a phone. The barkeep has his back to her but his name is emblazoned across the back of his shirt: EOGHAN. She did what most of us would do – pronounce it phonetically. It was wrong of course.
So just how do you say that? Wonder no more my fellow genealogists. Just hop on over to Hear Names and enter the name you want to hear. You can also search by nationality. What a wonderful idea this is! Now if you are going to be traveling, bookmark this site and don’t be caught up in embarrassment because you didn’t know that Eoghan is pronounced like Owen.
