Need a phonetic spelling for DJ and Tyson...


Posted: Oct 30, 2020, 9:02 AM
 

I hate getting people's names wrong...so I want to learn it correctly.

Tua is going to start for the Dolphins, and most announcers still butcher his name. I am pretty sure there is no letter n in Tua's name, yet I hear it ever week.

Someone below posted a good explanation of DJ's name. Another way to hear it is to search for the signing day celebration and listen to Dabo say it. He is spot on.

Now, I gotta confess, when I hear his name I immediately think of David Seville and the Chipmunks (I told y'all, I'm old.) This is the song that got Alvin and the Chipmunks started.

And Taisun I say:

Hope this helps - I'm sure it will help.
