Pronouncing this Norwegian Name

  1. Jan 22, 2007 #1
    Quick question: How do you pronounce the name of the chairman of the Norwegian Nobel Committee?

    Ole Danbolt Mjøs (copied from Wikipedia)

    Thanks

    ----
    Do you think there should a thread in GD on pronouncing names? How many times have we had a thread on El Hospital? :rolleyes:

    Ooh-le (le as in Leicester)

    Danbolt (straightforward)

    Mj (as the start of "mew" before the "u"-sound")-øs (pronounce as "us", but with a long vowel)
