Niels & Gang

New Name

New Name

Magnus looks a bit skeptical here, but he'll end up using it.
I always thought that was the best display of love and respect a transsexual could show their parents if they had been supportive.

And I know people will ask, but I haven't even thought of a girl's name for Magnus because I want people to think of him only with a boy's name.

@deathbymanga Magnus in the American way would probably be Mag (like Magazine)-nus (like nuts -t), whereas the Danish way would be Maugnus, or (Smaug -s +nus with the u being like a oooh sound, but with uhh, so maugnUhs, the g is semi-silent as well(we do that a lot here, silent letters..)).

@Milten Oh, thanks! I also must agree with Humon when she says that only Danes speak Danish, the pronunciation of some things baffles me.

@fiadraye Yes, almost, but without the h, so "Mou-nus"
And just to clarify: 'mou' as in 'cow', not 'low'. And the 'u' in nus is a short 'oo'-sound, not 'uh' :)
Actually 'mou' is shorter than 'cow', too...

And I must agree with Humon, it really does sound like a villain in English ;D

How would you pronounce that in Danish? It would be "Mou-nush", no?
