in reply to Name Space

My user name is based on "premchai", with the 21 added to (almost) guarantee uniqueness. Premchai is my middle name, which I chose to use as a name here mostly because it was uncommon. premchai21 was (and is) even less common. :-) The only disadvantage to Premchai is that it, being a Thai name, is almost always pronounced incorrectly outside of Thailand...

    How should one pronounce it? I have it reverberating in my head to rhyme with hem and cry... where am I going wrong?

    George Sherston

      Let's see now... p unaspirated, r half-rolled-ish (between an English r and the unvoiced t in Tao), em pronounced like aim, ch actually somewhere between English j and English ch, ai pronounced like ie in tie, emphasis second syllable. "21" can be pronounced as in any language.

      I HTH (though it probably doesn't, much).

    What a belated response, but I wanted to ask if you were thai with a thai middle name :)

      My mother is, but my father isn't. I was born in the USA, but I don't really consider myself to be of any specific nationality.

        me too :) I'm half thai half other. woohoo
