How is that pronounced?
I would suggest a-gwi-LAR
Since I talk to them almost daily, and have met Alex Aguilar in his shop: This is the correct way to say it.
You're not this guy, are you?<BR><BR>http://www.actsofgord.com/index.html<BR><BR>I dunno...just thought Gard/Gord, the video store quote in your sig....
Nope. I say "aggilar", and so should you.
Sorry Munji, this time ya's rong.
It's Alex's name, he gets to decide how to pronounce it!
Nope not me!
But I am saving the website, I dig it!
The video store quote is from the movie "Clerks"....inside joke with pmkelly and myself (we work at "competing" music stores...kinda).
down here in san antonio, we would pronounce it with a spanish accent. i don't know if alex is spanish, mexican, puerto rican, etc.
I just got back from Miami and i noticed that the different latino cultures pronounce some words differently - it was really cool checking that out.
as to alex, i pronounce it:
ah-gi-lar ("gi" as in geezer; single roll the "r" in "lar")
most aguilar's in these parts are mexican.
my problem is when people mispronounce my name, Carlos Adriel Alvarez
sometimes i just want to slap the #$it out of some people for not saying it correctly, but what gets me is when a Latino/a can't even pronounce it.
ok - i'm done with my rant.
Actually, the first time I saw "Aguilar", my instinct was to pronounce it "A-gi-yar"...
...must be some flashback from living in Seville...
