  • SS name pronunciation thread

    Do you suffer from the effects of ambiguous name pronunciation? Do you lie awake at night knowing that people are unsure of how to say your name on an obscure internet game from the mid-1990s?

    Hi, I'm qan, a personal injury lawyer and part-time staffer of SSCU Trench Wars. Don't let the injustice of an improperly-pronounced internet pseudonym hold you back. It's time to reclaim your e-life today.

    So let's set the record straight, once and for all.

    My name is pronounced "kwan", a la Jerry Maguire (which I just saw for the first time a couple of months ago and found this, to much amusement):

    You may know another staffer by the name of Wirah. Contrary to popular belief, it rhymes with Tyra:

    The ever-talented vys does not rhyme with "this", but is said like this:

    While BIET can't be beat, his name is still said (approximately):

    Thank you for reading. I hope this has helped to clear the air hanging over this rather sensitive subject.

    Now, it's your turn. Take a stand. Stamp out the hateful rumors, lies and misinformation. Declare your personal pronunciation today.

    People always pronounced IxaDor wrong and so I gave up. Initially I wanted it to sound like "Is Sigh Der" not "It's ah door". On the other hand, am relieved to know that I've been pronouncing your guy's names correctly (aside from Vys who I've always called "Visss" not "Vice")

        But forreal... one of the names I've always wondered about was RUCCI. I pronounce it Rook-eye, or roo-kai

        Never knew about Vys 8.5.2

        Edit: why does 8.5.2 keep getting posted???

          8.5.2, I searched on that one and it's a very new specific error to this forum version, I think. It's a little bit hilarious in terms of raw absurdity.

          I always thought RUCCI was pronounced "Rookie" but maybe with some kind of accent

          Ixador: I never thought was pronounced with Spanish(?) pronunciation but that makes a lot more sense. I've always said it "IK-sa-dor". Coming from whatever rules we've acquired and use to understand some unknown language that uses the same character set. Whereas when it's 俺はちんちんが大好きんだよ (praise to the Filthy one) then it becomes much clearer what accent or frame of reference you have to adopt. 8.5.2

                            I showed up on Accuracy Discord pronouncing Rucci "rue-chi" and was laughed out of town, it is apparently "roo-see".
