Kukla's Korner Hockey

Proper Pronunciation

via Ted Leonsis at Ted’s Take,

I am proud of my last name given to me by my father.

My ancestors are from Sparta. My last name is kind of a derivative of Leonidas, the King of Sparta and of 300 film fame.

For those of you who are unfamiliar, it is pronounced “Lee - On -  Sis”, Leonsis.

Most intelligent, non-xenophobic and educated people have no issue with its pronunciation.

In case the hockey weekend slipped by you, start here to find out who Ted may be talking to.
