Comments for DUKE:

This name is pronounced DOOK. The female version is Duka (DOOK-AH). It is not pronounced DOOK-AY.

"Dook"? OK, maybe in America. Everyone else pronounces this "Dyook". No offence, but seeing the pronunciation written down "Dook" just looks ridiculous to a British or Australian etc. person.

I completely agree with Aquamarina above. "Dook" looks hilarious to me. I always laugh when the guy sings "your dook" in the English version of the song "Dragostea din tei". I thought he was just pronouncing the word wrong for a long time, until I released that's the American pronunciation. In Ireland, "Duke" is pronounced "jook" and in Britain, it's pronounced "dyook". There should be three different pronunciation guides.
