I have to phone a lady called Ljupka, any ideas how to pronounce it?

I'm thinking something like loop-ka but not sure!

I'd probably guess something like LeeYupKa, but I'd probably apologise and ask how to pronounce it properly smile

loopka, i would guess it is a silent J.

Yoopka? or Leeyoopka?

The "j" may sound like a 'y' so Leeupka

Well she pronouced it for me when she answered "Leeyouka speaking" (it's croatian apparently)
