I'd like to know how to pronounce "Danaher" correctly? Thanks.
Is it wrong to pronounce it as "Don - uh - her"?
can it be 'DAY-nuh-her'?
I'd say it would be pronounced dan-a-hair with the stress on 'Dan'. The 'h' sound is more accurately a 'ch' sound in Gaelic languages, which is the voiceless velar fricative for those of you who know phonetics. It is the Anglicised version of the Irish surname Danachair.
However, all of your pronounciations are fine, as it's close enough to the real thing. Often, pronunciation of surnames vary.
