Which player's name is toughest for you to pronounce?
 
Not a big fan of Coin/Larriere. I think it looks funny when I pronounce it with French accent :oh:


Same applies for Mayr. :oh:

I can normally handle European names but I get totally tongue tied trying to pronounce Thai names. And I'm Asian :o

No problem with the French because we pronounce the "rr" the same way, but I guess it should be hard for english speakers specially...

Depends on your foreign language skills. I always get goosebumps when I hear Australians or Americans pronounce Petrova something like Petroooowa

Su-Wei Hsieh. No idea how to pronounce this.

Alla Kudryavtseva has always stumped me. It's that random v that gets me!

By the way, the opening post has really confused me. How are you supposed to pronounce Julie Coin, because it seems very simple to me! :lol:

Have trouble with: Su-Wei Hsieh, Noppawan Lertcheewakarn
Also I feel like some of the French names are harder for me to pronounce, I just feel like they sound odd coming out of my mouth.
