Actually, for Basques, my name is relatively easy. It ain’t Arrigorriagakoa and it’s a far cry from Eturriberrigorrigoikoerretaketxea (and imagine filling in those name bubbles on your SAT’s).  Nevertheless, it’s not the easiest name and for that, I am supplying a pronunciation guide:

It’s pronounced like this: Etch-egg-arrr-EYE (accent on the EYE)

Rhymes With: 

Sketch a car GUY

Etch a bar FLY

Kvetch. A Czar. WHY?

Fetch a jar, GUY.

If at this point you are still perplexed, feel free to ask a Spaniard. 🙂
