    Pronouncing Ce

    How do I pronounce Ce? Are there any rules?

    For example, I know how Ce in Cereals is pronounced like. How do I pronounce names such as Cevas, Ceva?
    I want to start a company and I want to make sure that a name starting with Ce is going to be easy to pronounce, like Celi.

    Re: Pronouncing Ce

    Hello Mikes02, and welcome to the forum.
    "Cevas", "Ceva" and "Celi" are not words in English, so there wouldn't be a set way of pronouncing them.

    While a "c" followed by an "e" is usually pronounced as an "s", that's not always the case.
    Look up "certain" and "cello" in the link below, and click on the speaker icon to hear how they're pronounced.

    Finally, please correct the information on your profile page.
