Are you joking?

That's exactly how it should be pronounced.

I think the name is Italian in original. In Italian "ce " is pronounced how we would pronounce ch .

Ch in Italian has a hard K sound.

JennyOnAPlate Mon 12-Feb-18 19:30:39

That is the correct pronunciation confused

WitchesHatRim Mon 12-Feb-18 19:31:47

It's you that's pronouncing it wrong!

Cello is pronounced chello though.

ShrinkWrap Mon 12-Feb-18 19:32:19

As in cello

Italian derivation. If the C is followed by an I or an E it is” soft” and pronounced like a CH.

MongerTruffle Mon 12-Feb-18 19:33:10

You're the one pronouncing it wrong.

blackteasplease Mon 12-Feb-18 19:33:15

And Limoncello grin

If the correct pronunciation of a name gets you irate, you need to get out more.

Take a biscuit with you for a snack.

I have known two Marcellas, neither pronounced their names with a "ch", just Mar-seller.

MsJudgemental Mon 12-Feb-18 19:35:22

It’s ITALIAN. C before i or e has a british ‘ch’ sound.

They're using the anglicised incorrect pronunciation.

HarveyKietelRabbit Mon 12-Feb-18 19:37:23

Oh dear.

DonnyAndVladSittingInATree Mon 12-Feb-18 19:37:29

My aunt is Marcella. I had never heard the “CH” pronunciation until I saw the ad in TV. It makes perfect sense though. I can’t call my aunt marchella though grin

QueenoftheSilverDollar12 Mon 12-Feb-18 19:38:03

Awkward 😕

DonnyAndVladSittingInATree Mon 12-Feb-18 19:38:58

—but there’s definitely no r at the end— <runs>

DonnyAndVladSittingInATree Mon 12-Feb-18 19:39:29

Oh FGS! How do you do strike through?

OutyMcOutface Mon 12-Feb-18 19:41:22

Well this is ironic.

HolyMountain Mon 12-Feb-18 19:42:19

It was a bit of a shit series and I sat through every episode.

Mummyoflittledragon Mon 12-Feb-18 19:55:08

My strike through no longer works either.
Just going to try it again —waffle waffle—

DonnyAndVladSittingInATree Mon 12-Feb-18 19:58:57

Have we lost the strike through function then?

Trumpton Mon 12-Feb-18 20:01:03

Ah strike throughs now have be be done thus :-
Actually mine did it as usual but I read on another thread that you have Togo into settings and disable auto punctuation or it turns -- into one long dash and makes it not work !
