ASK A QUESTION Pronunciation of Xoy
How do you pronunciate the Latin last name "Xoy"?
Hello slmart. The problem is that, it is pronounced differently in various parts of Spain and South America. The most common pronunciation that I've heard is that the X= sh. So it would sound like Shoy. When X is preceeded by a noun, it is virtually the same sound as English, but when it starts with an X it is the 'sh' sound which I mentioned earlier. But I've also heard it pronounced like the 'ch'...as in the Sottish 'Loch'. Hope this isn't too confusing!...Jool.
