We live in a multicultural world, so it's natural that our favorite celebrities have ancestry from all over the globe. For some celebrities, this means that their names can have origins in languages we're not familiar with, and if we don't speak that language, we might struggle to pronounce them correctly.
Lindsay Lohan, however, is one we thought we had all figured out. That's why it was such a surprise to hear the star say her own name when she launched her TikTok account in February. She shared a quick intro vid saying "Hey everyone. It’s Lindsay Lohan," and the crowd went wild. She pronounced her name "Lowen," rather than the expected "Low-han" like the rest of us have been saying for decades!
In this gallery, you'll find a list of celebs with names that are often mispronounced. Of course, we'll tell you how to pronounce the names correctly! Browse through and find out which other names you have been pronouncing right, and those you haven't...
