A-listers have built a name for themselves in the entertainment world, yet, many actors, vocalists, and models have battled with their names being regularly mispronounced. This is especially true in the case of the A-listers. The veneration that comes with being a successful artist does not necessarily entail that their names are pronounced correctly. This is especially true in the case of female entertainers.
1. Camila Cabello
The "Havana" singer was eager to rectify a Capital FM host who mispronounced her name during an interview. Her first name is pronounced kam-ee-lah, and her last name is pronounced kuh-bay-oh. The two Ls in her surname produce the y sound, just as they do in Spanish.
2. Charlize Theron
During an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Theron revealed that her surname should be pronounced there-in and not there-own. The heroine of Atomic Blonde stated that her surname is frequently mispronounced.
3. Amanda Seyfried
According to Seyfried, say-fried and sig-freed are the worst mispronunciations of her name. Despite what her sister claims, the Mamma Mia actress told Hollywood Streams that the correct pronunciation is sigh-frid.
4. Ariana Grande
Grande shocked us during an interview with Beats 1's Ebro Darden when she revealed that her name is pronounced Ariana gran-dee and not grahn-day. Frankie, Grande's sibling, is responsible for the standard pronunciation of her last name. Throughout her childhood, Grande pronounced her last name as grandee. Grande is pronounced grahn-day in Italian, but gran-dee in the Grande family.
The proprietor of Fenty Beauty confirmed in an interview with HLN that her name is pronounced ree-anna, not ree-AH-na. Have you mispronounced Rihanna's name this entire time? You are certainly not alone. Numerous luminaries, including Nicki Minaj, Seth Rogan, Taylor Swift, and Joe Jonas, have mispronounced the singer's name.
6. Milo Ventimiglia
According to a How to Enunciate video, the This Is Us star's name contains a silent G, which can confuse admirers who don't know how to enunciate it. Aside from the G, Ventimiglia's name is relatively easy to enunciate compared to those of other actors.
7. Gal Gadot
According to the Wonder Woman heroine, Gadot's last name is commonly mispronounced. Her parents changed her Hebrew surname from Greenstein to Gadot, which means "riverbank" in Hebrew. During an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Gadot disclosed that her surname is pronounced guh-dote.
Zendaya stated in a YouTube video that her name is commonly mispronounced as zen-dye-uh, whereas the correct pronunciation is zen-day-uh. "I think a lot of people see my name and assume it's more prestigious than it actually is," said the protagonist of Spider-Man: Far From Home.
9. Jake Gyllenhaal
Conan O'Brien was informed by Gyllenhaal that his Swedish surname is pronounced yee-len-hee-lo. Many admirers refer to the actor as jill-en-hall, but the actor's name is significantly more complicated.
