Pronunciation is quite like it would be in Italian and Spanish. Accent on the first syllable, short vowel. J is pronounced like in Juventus or "you".

Former lead vocalist from Nigthwish Tarja Turunen. Excellent vocalist.

Generally pronounced 'ta-re-ah'. It has to roll off your tongue to sound correct.

Tarja is the name of the operatic vocalist of progressive/speed metal band Nightwish. She is very beautiful and her voice is nothing short of lovely. :)

This is a very pretty name, I always thought it was pronounced with a soft 'j' sound like in French, but 'ta-re-ah' sounds very nice too. I think you can tell from the amount of similar posts on this page who the most famous bearer of this name is. :P

In Hungarian, "Tarja" means a part of pork, so it sounds a bit funny to our ears.

It's pronounced Tar-YA. Not Tar-JA or Ta-RE-ah. It's Tar-YA.
