User comments for Ragna
Bearing this name, I wanted to let the world know how many times it has been pronounced wrongly. Especially English-speaking people seem to have great difficulties with the way it is pronounced: a rolling /r/ and a soft /g/.
I was born in Sweden and came to America when I was 6 years old. Americans can not pronounce my name correctly. I don't bother to tell them the correct pronunciation unless they ask and are truly interested. So I tell them it sounds as if it is spelled Rahng-nah and the R is slightly rolled.
In Danish, we'd pronounce it RAO-na with the ao rhyming with How or ciao pow. Also the R sound is a strictly throat sound in Danish.
This is very much an 'old person name' here. I do kind of like it, though.
