Getting it right

By Steven | September 5, 2011

Nicky Hager’s surname is pronounced HAR-ger. You’d think people would know that by now.

    Hager, rhymes with lager.
    I correct people a lot.

    Me? I’m not even sure how my name is pronounced. Two syllables? Three? I couldn’t tell you, and don’t particularly mind.

    Edge-ler, Edg-el-er, Edge-lar, Ed-gel-er, Ed-gel-ar, etc. etc. As long as it’s not a hard G (like in gall), I’m usually fine with it.

    For those who forget, you can print out this handy reminder that Hager rhymes with lager

    Luckily for me “Wood” is fairly easy to pronounce.
