    Prospect Name Pronunciations

    Hopefully these two guys will have a great future with the Reds, and if/when they make it to the big club, I want to know how their name is pronounced.

    1. Joey Votto - Is it like Voetoe or Vaughto?

    2. Johnny Cueto - Is it Queto or something else?

    I know there may be a few more but I was unsure about these 2 guys. Thanks in advance for the help.

    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.

    I always thought it was:

    Vah-toe for Joey
    Kwee-toe for Johnny

    Pretty much how it looks.

    Vuh Lay Ka

    Depending on the PA, they usually accent the "Lay" syllable.

    One which has gotten me is Denis Phipps. I had always assumed since he's Dominican, that his first name was pronounced "Denn-ee", but it's actually how it looks, as in Dennis the Menace.

    I'll add:

    Philip Valiquette (Pheh-leep Val-i-ket) Atleast that is what I think it is, someone correct me if I'm wrong).

    Thanks for the help guys. It's not that big a deal, but it is nice to know the right way to pronounce a player's name.

    Angel Cabrera

    Angel or An-Hel?


    I alway pronounced

    Dumatrait, Doo-Ma-Trey (After I learned the ending T was silent)
    Votto - Vah-Toe
    Valiquette - Val-I(Like "It" w/o the T)-Kett
    Cueto - Cue-etto (I think Welsh calls him Cue-Way-Toe)
    Phipps looks more like Denise than Dennis.
    Valaika - Vuh-Lay-Ka ( I used to pronounce it Val-I-Ki (Ki like Guy))

    An-hell...ironically.

    on second thought when pronounced correctly it sounds a bit more like:

    Un-hell.

    I've learned more in 2 years of watching Dora than 2 years of high school Spanish.
