To listen to the pronunciation of a name, look for the "Listen to Pronunciation"
button near the top of the page which contains the meaning and other details for that name.
Additionally, you can look under the pronunciation
section. Our authors have devised a simple and intuitive method of describing the pronunciation of parts of a name by using similar sounding examples of English words.
For example, "Matilda" is pronounced as muh-til-duh
. Notice that we associate "da" in "Matilda" with the pronunciation duh
, which has the same quiet "uh"-sound characteristic as the word "run".
