My name is UTE- yes it really is. I get everything but the correct pronunciation and it drives me nuts. Growing up I was picked on because of my name, now I tell people I'm the Queen of Burgunde, mother of Krimhild who was the wife of Siegfried the dragon slayer. So it is a very old name dating back several hundred years after Jesus. When they still had the uroxen in Odinswald which is now Odinwald after the god Odin.

My name is Ute. I am a Nigerian male. The name is pronounced oo-tay. I am the only one bearing such a name in my ethnic group with over one million population. My father who named me never visited Germany in his lifetime. What a unique name! I am an Obstetrician/gynecologist and a human physiologist. Currently, I am an Associate professor of Physiology with several publications.

This is my mother's name and she pronounces it OO-teh. She immigrated from Germany and this is the common pronunciation. The Native American tribe named Ute pronounces it YOO-tee, which is completely different and drives my mother insane.

Wrong variations are YOO-tah (like the state Utah), YOO-tee, OO-tee, OO-duh, YOOT, or anything with 'YOO' or "TEE" in it.

I have only ever heard this pronounced OO-tə (including my aunt from Germany), as the database says, until today. I met a woman from Germany who pronounces it YOO-tee. I don't know how common this pronunciation is and it may be a regional thing.
