What’s in a name? Learning correct pronunciations

by The 100 Companies

Do you have a name that is constantly mispronounced? Mispronouncing a person’s name is not only embarrassing but is offensive to some.

Luckily, there are tools – like NameDrop – that allow people to learn how to pronounce challenging or uncommon names. This tool can even be attached to emails for learning the appropriate pronunciation to articulate correctly.

The more mispronouncing becomes common, the more likely people are to not correct others. Correctly pronouncing names can help others feel respected and included. Shining light on efforts to pronounce others’ names provides the inclusivity that we all benefit from in the long run.
