How do you pronounce nanjg?

I have a weird question, how do you pronounce nanjg?

I just realized that I was pronouncing it as “nan-jing,” which is far from what it really is. Big Smile

Help me so that I don’t feel weird whenever ordering a Nanjg driver. :bigsmile:

So far we have:

7 x “nan-jing”
2 x “nan-jay-gee”
5 x “nan-jig”
1 x “nundge”
4 x “nang”
4 x “nan-jang”
2 x “nange-guh”
1 x “nan-gee”
1 x “nunshg”
1 x “nan-jigga”

Updated until post 49. :santa:

I pronounce it, nan (nun), J, G.

But my native language is Greek so i could be doing the same thing as you. :bigsmile: Wink

Thanks for your input. That was the first thing that came into my mind when I realized that my initial pronunciation wasn’t correct.

I wonder who named these drivers Nanjg. Thanks again.

I’ve been pronouncing it “nan-jing” too. I suspect a lot of people do. It kind of just rolls off the tongue.

I’ve never actually had to say it out loud, but in my mind, I’d been thinking “nan-jig”.

Ryan, “nan-jay-gee” kind of sounds like “nan-tae-jee” or “nan-dae-jee” (since you’re in Korea, and, I’m assuming speak Korean :)). Just kidding :)!

Edit: I, too, am also curious where the name cames from, or what it means/stands for?

Mind if I combine yours with RedForrest’s pronunciation?

I've always pronounced it as nang as in hang or gang.  Silent "J" all the way. LOL.
