Why would you pronounce it the first way? His name's not Polish.

Update reading list

The idea of parodying the preceding Atlasian's postings is laughable, of course, but not for reasons one might expect.

I've always pronounced it just as Be-gick, but the 2nd option I think is how it's actually pronounced. Though mispronouncing Begich's last name is nowhere near as bad as those who accidentally refer to his Senate colleague Murkowski as Mikulski. Tongue

Some of us need a reflection from you here:

Beg-itch, since that's how he pronounces it

Also, that's a pretty good TV ad.

The modern conservative is engaged in one of man's oldest exercises in moral philosophy; that is, the search for a superior moral justification for selfishness.

Early on, for some reason, I misread his name as Beigich (thus pronounced "bee-gitch"). But yeah "beg-itch" seems the correct way.

There also used to be some controversy about Gingrich's name:

As regards myself, I pronounce Begich's name like: be:ɡiÁ   Wink
