Please help us say your name correctly at Commencement. Indicate either the phonetic spelling of your name or a familiar word that rhymes with your name.


  • If your name is commonly mispronounced, tell us what not to say (for instance, "PED-er-son,” not Peterson)
  • If it rhymes with another word mention that other word (so if "Gough" is pronounced "GOFF" you might mention that it rhymes with "cough").
  • If it has an ending vowel, tell them whether to say the vowel or not (for instance Brekke; tell me if it is Breck or Brek-key.
