Celebrity Names You Are Pronouncing Wrong

2 of 12

Dr. Seuss

What you may have been saying: “Dr. S-oo-se”

How it’s pronounced: “Dr. Soy-ce”

It may come as a shock to learn that Theodore Seuss Giesel’s pen name is pronounced “Soyce,” as in rhymes with “voice.” His college roommate even made up a poem to help people out:

You're wrong as the deuce
And you shouldn't rejoice
If you're calling him Seuss.
He pronounces it Soice!

What?!
