I have an interview in a couple hours and I don't want to embarrass myself.
You pronounce it the way that Tom Brokaw and Barbara Walters pronounce crayon.
Do you have a phone number? Maybe you can call with your number blocked and hear how it's pronounced on voice mail or when the person answers the phone.
Qu + Eon (rhymes with Leon)
No, r5. Queeeeee-on. Rhymes with Leon.
Is the person known to be black, or Korean? If the latter, it's more like "Kwon."
ask the receptionist when you arrive.
It's pronounced "smegma"
OP, they're going to introduce themselves the minute you meet them. The receptionist is prob used to the mispronunciation.
OP, Having an unusual first name, I would far rather someone complement me on my parents' creativity, and then ask me for the correct pronunciation, rather than embarrass both of us. Those with foreign names are also used to badly mangled versions. Better to be honest and politely ask for the truth.
Hope they don't read DL.
It was Key-WAHN (rhymes with 'beyond').
He said it first (phew!).
The lady pronounced her name Shytheed, spelled shithead.
Was he Asian or Black?
Sad to read posts from very racist morons, instead of sticking up for fellow minorities facing discrimination and prejudice.
