It's like Koo-uh. It's difficult to write it with English letter because neither of the sounds exist in that language...

Oh really? I'd always just assumed it was pronounced like Coyn, as in "one pound coin" or what have you.

If you want to have it with an accent, it's rather Sabinč.

We are kinda sloppy with a closing "e" in German, so it is never pronounced like the French é.

Thanks for the info. It seems that most people mispronounce Sabine by using 2 syllables instead of 3.

I was waiting for this one since her name was brought up several times before. I also think most people here don't even know they make a pronouncing mistake especially that ES crew has never called her right during all those years

btw, Puig's name is pronounced here at the start and it's obviously given as "Pooig" like I suspected unless my ears defy me. And the guy is definitely a native speaker

You cant really blame them.

Pronouncing her name correctly is basically mission impossible for everyone outside Eastern Europe.
