Hi,

My husband and I have made a list of names for our baby. How would you pronounce (or mispronounce) these names?

Yayoi
Wakana
Azusa
Musashi
Yuzuru
Makoto

I've never heard any of these names said out loud before, so I could be way off on these... still, these would be my guesses:

Yayoi: yuh-YOY

Wakana: wuh-KAH-nuh

Azusa: uh-ZOO-suh (...reminds me of Aziza: uh-ZEE-zuh)

Musashi: moo-SAH-shee

Yuzuro: yoo-ZOO-roh

Makoto: muh-KOH-toh

Most of these sound Japanese to me -- if they are, you may also want to try asking this question at a forum for people who speak Japanese or live in Japan.

Update!

I've found a .wav file of someone saying Makoto here:

These are Japanese names as you guessed. I am from Japan and my husband is from U.S. Because he is fluent in Japanese, I was wondering what they sound like for native English speakers who know nothing about Japanese. Your comment was a great help! Thanks a lot!
