    Re: More help needed for pronouncing names... foreign names

    I can't help you very much with their last names, but from the various ABBA documentaries I've collected, their first names are pronounced:

    Agnetha (ann-NYET-ah)
    Bjorn (beeORN)
    Benny (just like it looks)
    Anni-Frid (ahnni-FREED)

    Luckily, the girls' nicknames are easier to pronounce: Anna and Frida (FREE-dah).

    Thank you very very much.... It really helps. I really wish there is a dictionary which addresses people's names.

    Appreciate your help.
