How can I participate?

It is easy. All you need to do is record yourself saying your first name (not your family or surname) and upload it to our server. (Read our step by step guide on recording your name)

Once your file has been approved it is added to the catalogue of names here. People from all around the world can then search for your name and listen to how you pronounce it.

Why would people do this? Because it is interesting!


Do I need an interesting name to participate?

What a silly question.... all names are interesting! Even Bob is an interesting name if you think about it...

We want to document every name out there, so please submit your name! Yes, that means you too Bob!


Can I submit a name even if it is already in the database?

Yes, please do. It will be interesting to get people from different countries submitting the same names, and then comparing the differences in pronunciation!


Can I submit my nickname, or my dog's name etc?

We'd rather that you didn't. We only have so much disk space on the server!


Does it cost anything to participate?

Say That Name is 100% free. However, if you would like to help support the project please read how you can help.


What are the requirements for the audio files?

All audio files need to be in .wav format and be less than 100 Kb in size.

Please record your file using the following settings: 22.050 kHz, 8 Bit, Mono (about 21 kb/sec).

For instructions on how to record your file using a Windows based PC, please read our step by step guide.


What will you do with my audio file?

We will serve it here from our website. People from around the world can come and search the archive and listen to your recording.

Your email address (if you supply it) will not be disclosed to the public. Only your first name, sex and country will be displayed with your audio file.
