How do you say it

Recommended Posts

Several countries on the continent pronounce the letter ''W'' as a ''V''. So how do you pronounce Ricky van Wolfswinkel''s name? Is it as it is written.....Ricky van WolfsWinkelor the Germanic.....VolfsVinkelA combination of the two perhaps.....WolfsVinkelor the reverse.....VolfsWinkel

And then there''s the ''Van'' bit........

In Germany, I can''t speak for Holland, V is pronounced as F and W as V. Hence  a VW car is called a FAU VAY.

 

I expect that if he does well, which we all fervently hope, he will be known affectionately as either Ricki or as Wolfie.
