How do you pronounce Iran?
I pronounce it as [ ih-r AH n ] That is i like in it, r like in rat, AH as in car, and n as in no
And i raaaaan i ran so far awaaaay
One of my best friends is Persian, so I have learned to pronounce it the correct way... "ē-RON"
I pronounce it "full of scumbags"
I say it the way it's suppose to be said which is "E-ron" I used to think it was pronounced how it looked but then I was educated and now say it the correct way.
I pronounce it as the Iranians do (e-Ron, e-Ron-ian). My best friend growing up lived there for several years. Just as Oregon is pronounced or-e-gun (not o-ruh-gone) and Illinois is pronounced ill-a-noy (not ill-a-noise), we pronounce it as the locals do.
We should pronounce Mexico Mehico, just like we wouldn't call a Hispanic man named Jesus (hay-soos) jee-zus.
When people say or-uh-gone, I reply "where did it go?"
Ha! I might give that a try...with my husband's ENTIRE family in Wisconsin and Illinois. I've tried calling their states IlliNOISE and WisCONEsin but they somehow don't take the hint!
One of my best friends, who's from Georgia, still calls it Or-uh-gone just because she knows it grates on me. Friends are awesome.
If we are saying it wrong maybe the damn spelling of the word should change.
LOL, then good luck with the entire French language. Don't go to N. Idaho or Louisiana.
Oh I hate French words. The French language was created by drunks or what? How can so many words be spelled in a way that they don't sound like they are spelled?
The first 1. I got yelled at by some bitch in like 10th grade for saying it "wrong" and just told her, "way to solidify how I'm gonna say it forever. Thanks!" Lol
Same with Eye-rack.
You don't like it, I hope you call Germany "Deutschland" Brazil "Brasilia" and all the other countries by how they say it in their language. If you don't, stop being a hypocrite.
Umm, Brasilia is the capital, and I always spell it Brasil, like the Brasilians do.
The latter is correct
Pressure sure e-ron is the correct way, but I say eye-ran.
Shh, you'll get flipped out on for saying it the wrong way on this thread!
I just have to say that the nastiness, lack of civility that I've seen in some of these comments on such an inane topic makes me lose all hope for the future of debate and communications on the internet, and humanity as a whole. Seriously, people, you need to lighten up. Not EVERY subject has to be something to get upset about, or to be disrespectful of other people. Obviously people have varying opinions. You can think your opinion is better than opposing opinions, and even make your case for why it is. But to belittle people or call them names for not agreeing with you is just wrong.
Don't lose hope. It's really one main uncivilized user here who can't seem to have a conversation about anything without slinging names.
I'm sure you're talking about me Misscrayonwax, and I am so sorry I hurt your feeling on an App site. I hope you have a lovely day ☺
I also hope you get a life instead of worrying about an app site ☺
Trust, my feelings aren't hurt. But yours clearly are.
Get over yourself
The "eye"s have it!
I have a buddy who moved from eye ran. And he pronounces it like that
Sorry, not true, I = Eee everywhere in the planet except for English speaking countries.
Everyone knows it's A-Aron.
Who says it like that?
No one. It's a meme reference.
Ah, must've missed that one, thanks
Thanks, I needed a good laugh!
Look, you can use whichever pronunciation doesn't hurt your brain too much, but trying to defend a phonetically incorrect pronunciation like eye-RAN as if it might actually be right is the epitome of stupidity.
Who says E-Ron. Feel like I've heard it that way on TV once.
I do ever since my son's friend who is from Iran said that was how it was pronounced
I pronounce it GAR-BAGE!
Fun fact! Iran is the name that was suggest to them by Hitler in 1935 because the Persias are Aryans. Iran means Aryan in Persian.
The inscription of Darius the Great at Bisutun reads in part; “I am a Persian, son of a Persian, an Aryan of the Aryan race.”
How did I escape from Iraq? Iran
"and Iran...Iran so far away..."
My substitute teacher
"E-ron" sounds ridiculous. The news anchors do that here.
You mean the correct way?
Says who? People say it different ways fucktard.
There is NO correct way to say it. People pronounce a lot of words differently.
😂😂thanks I needed this laugh
I'm glad!!! 😂😄
Have an awesome day in Cali ☺😊
Miss Amy has so much to learn. I'll stick to the central fact: there IS only ONE correct way to pronounce it: the way they pronounce it IN IRAN. And that's /ee-RAHN/. Yes, it sounds strange to your Western ears, but that doesn't mean they are wrong about the pronunciation of their own country. Idiot.

Tlaney ... voice of reason. Thanks!
Thanks tlaney! So glad I wasn't wrong here
I couldn't care less. I say "I" "Ran".
And tlaney, go fuck yourself 😄
I hope you all have a great night! 😊😗
Tlaney, we agree!
Amy totally has to be a troll account. No one can be that crass and ill mannered.
Agreed. I put her on Ignore last night, right after she started using LoFidelityJenna's vocabulary. 😃
I may not see eye to eye with you but that was a completely inappropriate response to you and completely undeserved.
Nope, not a troll. I just couldn't care less about any of you attacking me over not liking how I say Iran. You assholes attack me, I WILL attack back.
I said I don't like how it's said, and that dick says "the correct way?" Agree to disagree.
You'll attack back? Give me a break. It's a friggen app.
Agreeing with someone who disagrees with you is not "attacking" you. It is called having a honest debate. Also, all the expletives were coming from you; not a single person cussed at you. Throwing expletives around does not make you right; in fact people tend to consider you less informed.
You're all wrong; it's actually pronounced, "ass-backwards regressive country run by a bunch of religious lunatics."
It is pronounced e-rahn not I RAN. Sad people can't say anything correctly.
Says the fucking liberal
Dude, what does liberalism have to do with any of this?
Viper, look at the person's place of living. "Dude" that's why I brought it up.
Shut the fuck up you stupid white trash. Go shoot up some heroine like the rest of you rust belt hill billies do.
Well THERE was a calm and measured response. Doesn't that representative sample give you such great confidence in leftism?
I'll be white trash like you and tell you to go fuck yourself. By the way, what the hell does heroin have to do with politics? Way to be a loser like the rest of you baby ass democrats.
I brought up politics because it's on your profile. Freak.
Eye-ran like a normal person.
Like Flock of Seagulls.
So if people pronounce something differently they are abnormal?
Oh please spare me your bullshit.
Um yes if a person deviates from the normal they are abnormal.
I (the I sound like the beginning of "icky") rron . So it has two sounds ir-ron.
Although I know it's supposed to be pronounced e-ron. I pronounce it i-ran.
And I pronounce it ear-ran.
How it's supposed to be pronounced.
Eer-Aan for Iran is the correct pronunciation. Eer-Rock for Iraq as well.
I was gonna say this.. neither of those options are correct
I've never heard any news anchor say Eer-ann, that's why I didn't include it as an option.
E-ron rhymes with Mo-ron🤔
Awww did you just learn about rhymes? Keep at it bud!
Are you saying it was a dud?
Anybody want a peanut?
That doesn't rhyme
76% agree with me, what would you two call the other 24%🤔?
A Princess Bride reference?
I don't think that means what you think it means.
Good heavens, are you still trying to win? You’ve got an overdeveloped sense of vengeance, that’s going to get you in trouble someday.
Have fun storming the castle!
I do not envy you the headache you will have when you awake. But for now, rest well and dream of large women.
c'mon Coffee, I have one more and I'm waiting for you to take your turn.
As you wish
You fell victim to one of the classic blunders—the most famous of which is, “Never get involved in a land war in Asia”—but only slightly less well-known is this: “Never go against a Sicilian when death is on the line”! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! Ha ha ha
And the As you wish was brilliant.
he's only "mostly dead"...
To me, e-ron always comes off to me as sounding pretentious and snobby. Reminds me of the Democratic debate where Bernie and Hillary kept pronouncing Muslims as "Mooooslims", and seemed like they kept trying to outdo each other by adding another o.
Pronouncing things correctly is snobby?
It is in an alt-fact world. 😢
It's a translation of a foreign name, there is no "correct" pronunciation
So if I pronounce China as "Chee-na", I'll still be pronouncing it correctly?
I just said there is no correct pronunciation
And you're wrong. What's your point
No I'm actually not but whatever helps you sleep at night
The correct pronunciation of the name Juan is "Wahn". Not "Jew-an". Foreign names have correct pronunciations; the correct pronunciation of a name is the way they say it. Names do not have translations.
Iran is not a translation; it's a name.
Look up the word "dialect" it may help you understand better..
Dialects apply to words not names.
Lol no they apply to names as well. Ask a chinaman to say "America".
You lost any credibility at "chinaman". 😒
I'm sorry snowflake I don't care if i offended you.
I'm not Chinese, so I'm not personally offended. I pity you for still living in the Dark Ages.
I wouldn't LET you offend me. Small minds don't have that kind of power over me.
Ooooh a condescending snowflake, haven't seen that before... Lol. You are a cancer of society, grow a pair and clean the sand out of your vagìna.
That means so much coming from a guy named Rambo.
Attacking my name now? You really are pathetic
So I hope y'all use "Deutschland" instead of Germany, "Italia" instead of Italy, and every other country how "they" say it. If you don't but you get all uppity about Iran, you are a hypocrite....
Italy and Italia are different words. "Italy" is not a translation across alphabets; it's actually a different word.
Iran is an attempt to spell the Persian word for their country in the Latin alphabet; it's the same word. It is pronounced the same.
I had to chime in.
So, should we pronounce F-R-A-N-C-E Froawnce? M_E_X_I_C_O as Meheco? Should people in Mexico stop pronouncing United States as Estados Unidas?
E-ron and Eye-ran but I use the first one more
That's completely different than anything I usually hear.
I usually hear Eye-rahn more than E-rahn
Jstahl: I know. I couldn't pick from the two that were offered. And it's not Ron. It's more like Ira with a long a not sharp and not O. How do you pronounce Iranian.
More like "Ee-Rahn", which is how my Iranian American friends pronounce it.
Thanks for the question jstahl!
No problem, glad you liked it
