Yes, she said it wrong. The correct pronunciation is Sne-ZHA-na.

^ Actually, Freja Beha is pronounced Fry-uh Bee-uh. Except the 'r' is guttural, not like the English R. :p

And Agyness Deyn's real name is Agnes Hollins

Yeah. It's hard to describe the 'r', it took me like 3 days to get it right Danish isn't exactly the sexiest language around. It sounds like you're hacking up a furball. With the 'r' it kind of sounds like "Fi-ah" (like a fire).

I know the r...we Dutchies have the same r as the Scandinavians do :p I find it odd though that Freja sounds like Fry-ah and not Fray-ah Did not expect that at all!

I always said 'Fray-uh' until my Danish friend told me how to pronounce it. I think Freja says "Fray-uh Bay-uh" to make it easier for everyone to pronounce, and plus that way, it rhymes!

Veroniek just Veroniek...and Gielkens...well there's the g again :p If you know the yiddish g sound (as if you scrape your throat) that is it. Then the rest is, -eel-kuhns
