Stupid Band Names:

  • Her first name must cause much confusion as to pronunciation. It is pronounced with the "c" having a "soft c" sound (sounds like "s" in "case"). But in normal English pronunciation, a "soft" sound for "c" occurs only before "e", "i", "y" . Examples are in, "cent", "icing", and "juicy". She was born in Nashville, Tennessee, so no one would expect her name to be of some foreign origin causing a pronunciation so confusing by English pronunciation patterns. For that matter, I suspect most singers with names of foreign origin with such potential for confusion have changed their names or spelling thereof if wishing for careers as English-language singers.

How to Pronounce a Band Name:

"ma-trei-sa burg
I thought it was pronounced "mat-tra-ka", and I bet a lot of her fans pronounce it the same way.
