The Name Engine

Filed under: Newsworthy,Worth It — aproposofnothing @ 9:01 am

A very clever idea for a website, check it out here.

The Name Engine® is a resource dedicated to providing the correct name pronunciations of athletes, entertainers, politicians, newsmakers, and more. Until now, no standard has existed to confirm this information. But the need for such a standard is undeniable. Even well-known names are often pronounced in different ways, leaving you to wonder what the correct pronunciation is. Now you have an easy way to determine it.

All names are painstakingly researched for authenticity. Personal confirmation is the ultimate goal. At a minimum, they are confirmed by individuals with firsthand knowledge of the name in question. These individuals include team play-by-play announcers, public relations representatives, sports information directors, agents, etc.
