now I understand what you meant! ;-)
But a German
wouldn't pronounce the name Valkyrie
with an F-sound but with a V-sound.
a W is pronounced like an English V and a V is pronounced like an F. But V is pronounced like an English V in foreign words and many names as well. Only those names with a German
origin are pronounced with an F-sound (like Volker
, Vocke and Volkwin), foreign names with a (English) V-sound (like Viktor
, Vinzent and Valerie
would be pronounced with an F-sound because the German
form of the name is Walküre (it's not used as a first name though) so even this foreign spelling would be pronounced the same way.
