[Opinions] Swedish audio pronunciation (including names like Björn, Knut, Astrid, Sigrid..)
Some of you were interested in hearing how some names are pronounced in Swedish, so I made an audio of some of them. If there's any other names you want to hear the pronunciation of, leave a comment and I'll do it. Acke, Adolf, Åke, Björn, Ebbe, Elis & Eskil

It's always interesting to hear the voice of someone you've never heard before.

Thank you!I think John pronounced "zhon" is unexpectedly delightful.

Hey, thanks for doing this. This is really neat. Definitely a few surprises in here for me. I thought Dagny was prounced DAGG-nee and Hillevi had 3 syllables. And the way you pronounce "gn" in Agnes and Signe is really hard for me to mimic or even describe. Same with the Å sound in Åke. Sounds cool though!Here are a few other Swedish names I like, that I'd be interested in hearing you say:Alva, Ingrid, Ester, Juni, Ronja, Moa, Svea, Lo, My, Stina
Nils, Arvid, Olle, Malte, Sixten, Melker, Loke, Tage, Sigge, CasperI'm also curious how English loan names like Jack, John, Kevin, Sally, Belle, and Hailey are pronounced in Swedish.

Yeah I included some names that people here usually have a hard time with, like Dagny and Astrid.I've done the names you and somebody random wanted to, I'll upload them now.

This is cool! The Swedish pronunciations definitely sound interesting. Could you pronounce any names like Hilda or Ilse?

Sure! I'll wait and see if anyone else wants me to do some other names and do them all at the same time.
