Dumb question, Alden pronounciation? - Page 2

Thanks guys. Damnit I hate changing the way I pronounce things. So used to al-den.

These threads always make me realize how ridiculous every word sounds if you listen to yourself say it over and over.

I thought it was pronounced "Crockett and Jones."

I always pronounce it "TOO BALLER," but I recognize that may be unique to me.

I say All-Den. I knew someone with Alden as a first name and that's what we called him.

And why would you use Japanese pronunciation as a guide?

Because they always transliterate certain pronunciations a specific way. If it were "Al-den", they'd say アルデン (Ah-ru-den).

Always pronounced it Al-den. But that does not mean that I am right. Well I guess just like somebody said, it all depends on the region, place and etc.

So what ever you pronounce it if you can understand each other, the your purpose is fulfilled that is the most important I guess.

Employees at the NY and DC stores pronounce it All-den
