There's A Good Chance That You’ve Been Pronouncing Chrissy Teigen’s Name Wrong

There's A Good Chance That You’ve Been Pronouncing Chrissy Teigen’s Name Wrong

Turns out that Chrissy Teigen and Ariana Grande’s last names aren’t pronounced the way we thought they were

Chrissy Teigen not only happens to be an amazing American model and married to EGOT John Legend but she also happens to be plagued with the curse of people pronouncing her last name wrong. If you have a unique first or last name then you’ve probably given up on people trying to say your name right and just quietly nod your head whenever the butchering comes. Well, Teigen isn’t taking it anymore and recently told the entire world that her last name is pronounced “tie-gen” not “tee-gen”. To be completely honest, we’ve been at fault, saying “tee-gen” this entire time and now our brains are not quite sure how to process the change.

And it gets worse. Apparently we’ve also been saying Ariana Grande’s last name incorrectly too and she’s just never said anything about it. According to Grande, her last name is pronounced "Grand-ee" not “Grahn-deh”, which she made very clear in a Beats One interview that released last month.

We totally get it. Some of us have interesting last names and this is something that we’ve been cursed with our whole life. To be honest, it’s probably something that many of our kids and grandkids will have to deal with too (unless of course your last name is something easy to pronounce like Smith).
