I know her first name is pronounced Lay-uh, but what about her last name? any help and further inquiries welcome!
Erin told me she was Welch so...

I always say it like 'gee-shaa', but that's probably not correct

ge-ee-za. The 'j' is actually harder to pronounce, in Portuguese it's completely different from what it is English. It's something between 'sh' and 'dj'.

Good thread.

I've been calling Dewi 'djew-eeh' all along

How is Doutzen pronounced then? I don't want to butcher another Dutch name, so I better just ask.
