Here are some brand names that we see in the shopping malls all the time. You might think that you have been pronouncing them correctly, but wait till you go through this list. Some even left our jaw dropped.
Ji-pan-gee? Originated from Korea, the correct pronunciation for this unique corn snack with soft serve should be: Ji-Pang-Ee
Some of us might get this one right but surely not with 100% confidence. The correct French pronunciation for L’Occitane should be: Lox-See-Tahn
3) llao llao
The name of this frozen yogurt brand follows Spanish pronunciation, which means it should be pronounced as: Yao Yao. (not Lao Lao)
4) Auntie Anne’s
It’s 50-50 really for Auntie Anne’s. So is it Auntie Annie’s or Auntie Ann’s? Well, based on our finding, it should be pronounced as: Auntie-Ann’s. (not Annie).
Ker-Ras-Taste? Not quite. In French, it should be pronounced as: Ker-A-Staz
Most of us wouldn’t even bother to pronounce Schwarzkopf, the famous hair products brand. Originated from German, it should be pronounced as: Shwarts-kawpf
Now this one made our jaw dropped. Zara is pronounced as easy as Za-Ra we thought. But guess what? By the proper Spain origin, it should be pronounced as: Dzah-Dah
