Household Brand Names That We’ve Been Saying Wrong All This Time

Samsung

This Korean tech brand also has a little twist to the way it’s supposed to be pronounced. It turns out that the correct way to saying it is just “sam-song” not “sam-sung.”

Huawei

The title has a very patriotic meaning behind it. “Hua” means “China,” while “Wei” can be interpreted as “making, acting, planting, building, managing and treating.” Usually, non-Chinese speakers refer to it as “hu-ah-wei,” but the correct way to say is “wah-way.”

Zara

The retail giant’s name seems short and easy to pronounce but it appears to hide a little trick. It turns out that instead of saying “zah-rah” or “za-ra,” we should be pronouncing it in an Italian manner, as “”tsah-dah” or “dzah-dah.”

Nutella

It managed to become a common breakfast treat for many families and just like that, many of us are used to pronounce it “nut-el-uh.” But it was revealed that the product is supposed to be said as “new-tell-uh.”

Reese’s

The story behind this candy is very simple, the peanut butter cups and chocolate confections are named after the man who created the b rand. The common mistake is to call it “rees-ees,” but we are supposed to call it “rees-is.”

Lidl

Those from UK are used to calling it “lih-dil,” but in Germany, the country where the discount supermarket chain was established, people pronounce it as “lee-dil.”

Bayer

This German pharmaceutical and science company has a rather simple title yet not everyone manages to say it the right way. The right pronunciation of this word is “buy-er.”

IKEA

This name hides a sentimental story behind it, it’s a combination of the first letter of the founder’s initials, a farm and the town he grew up in. surprisingly, it’s a challenge for many people to pronounce this short word correctly. The right way say it is”ee-kay-uh,” instead of the more common “eye-key-uh.”
