April 19th Question

How do you pronounce your name? Is it Mo-dee-sit or is it Mode-sit or something else?

The “family” pronunciation of my surmname is MODD [rhymes with “odd”] ess-it. That, of course, breaks every rule of English pronunciation, but it’s what I inherited.

    In my head I’ve always pronounced it mo-de-sitt.
    mo (as in the first part of moth)
    de (as in the first part of develop)
    sit (as in sit down).

    I’d always thought I could be wrong but it turns out there were more possible variations that I’d considered.
