CBC's hard French accent : Prime time : SunNews Video Gallery (external - login to view)

It's a strange world when some people are accused of properly pronouncing one's name.

My first name is Sean. The "proper'' English way of pronouncing it would be ''Seen'' yet it is pronounced ''Shawn'' because of it's Gaelic origins. Big deal...

Why in the world would one accuse journalists of properly pronouncing a name?

In Gaelic shawn can be spelled Sean as well. I have a son named Sean and is
pronounced Shawn. I nave a granddaughter named after her dad her name is
Seana or See en a Gaelic is not the best English to quote
Why the ****ens would people be squabbling over the pronunciation of a name
whether French or any other a name is a personal choice

Hey! Critising the correct and traditional pronunciation of people's names is a very good use of airtime, iie? Hai?.
