User comments for Duke (Pronunciation Only)

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 agree with the user aquamarina. "DOOK" is more of an American English pronunciation whereas the British English pronunciation would be "DYOOK".

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.

In Britain, this would be pronouned JOOK or DYOOK.
