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

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

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".
