Don’t be SHAMED…. Pronunciation is KEY!

I saw this list online a couple of times before and never got around to sharing it with others, but one of the blogs I follow posted it again so I want to present it to you all. It’s very helpful! I’m not ashamed to say that I have mispronounced a few of these names before. I hope this list helps some of you as it did me. Knowledge is Power and Pronunciation is Key!
