Comments for the name Geoffrey

Comments for GEOFFREY:

My name is Geoffrey and I live in Holland. We pronounce this name in two versions:

1) Jeffrey (Djeffrey)
2) Geoffrey (Djoffrey)

But in Dutch the pronunciation of Geoffrey is 'Djoffrey' and not 'Djeffrey' (Jeffrey). This is because of the 'o' in the name.

For example: the name 'George', is pronounced as 'Djorge' and not as 'Djerge'.
So, it's very strange you pronounce Geoffrey and Jeffrey as the same name.

But in Holland Jeffrey is more common than Geoffrey, but of course I like my own spelling better.
