Name Pronunciation

Recommended Posts

Keith Ward

I'm a sucker for proper name pronunciation, so I was wondering what people's opinions were on how to say the character's names.

 

This is how I figured they sounded:

 

Huang Lee = "Hung Lee"

 

Wu "Kenny" Lee = "Woo Lee"

 

Chan Jaoming = "Chan Yow-Ming"

 

Hsin Jaoming = "Sin Yow-Ming

 

Zhou Ming = Either "Zow Ming" or "Zoe Ming"

I did a little research and found that it's actually pronounced "H-wong", which rhymes with "wrong".

Huang Lee = "Hwang Lee"

 

Wu "Kenny" Lee = "Woo Lee"

 

Chan Jaoming = "Chan Geeow-Ming"

 

Hsin Jaoming = "He-Sin Geeow-Ming

 

Zhou Ming = "Joe Ming"

 

That would be how it would sound, but i am not taking into consideration tonal variables and all that stuff. Would also depend if the names are long form or short form chinese. Hope this helps.

Huang = Hu-aw-ng (as said above, rhymes with wrong)

Jao = J-ow (rhymes with pow)

Zhou = Z-ou (rhymes with go)

 

Hsin = Sin (why does Wade-Giles add an H?)

 

I wish I can show you in IPA form but I have no idea on how to use that.
