Had this conversation at the petstore today....he said tomato I said...

But really. I've never really known how to pronounce "ranchu" is it just ranch-ew?

What about oranda? Or-on-da or Or-an-da?

I'm not sure at all about ryukin? I have no idea how to say that!

demekin?

sarasa?

shubunkin?

Am I the only one? I'm still kinda new to goldies and I know what all these are, but I'm just not sure how to say them!

Rye-ewww-kin!

Or-an-da

Ranch-ew!

Shoe-bunk-in

Sarasa is harder for me to write out, I have a Canadian accent, I say it Sar-is-a but the -is- is kind of -as- too, if that makes any sense at all.

And as for demekin, lets just say I'm lucky I've never had to say that, because I am not quite sure either :lol

Thanks for the clarification. My g/f and I were just discussing the other day that neither of us knows how to pronounce Ryukin, which I *think* is the type of goldie we have. It appears to either be that or a fantail. Hopefully it's the latter because that I can pronounce. :P

If you want to pronouce them in true Japanese fashion then they are as follows. :)

Demekin: day-may-kin

Oranda: oh-ron-dah

Jikin: gee-kin

Ranchu: ron-chew

Ryukin: ryu-kin (ryu pronounced almost as one syllable)

Tosakin: toe-sah-kin

Wakin: wah-kin

But in the West, they would be spoken as Jessica said. :)

You've got a good book there, Emma!

And sarasa would be:

Sah-rah-sah

Oh! A note on anything with "kin" in it.... kin is pronounced like keen. ^_^

Great, first I had to train myself to spell it "Ryukin" instead of "Ryunkin", now I have to make myself say Rye-ewww-kin instead of Rye-uh-kin. Ahhhh, it is so hard to change my ways! :blink:

I almost wish I didn't have one now so I wouldn't have to say it all the time! No, not really. ;) Besides my Ryukin is special, she has a wen, maybe I should call her a Wenukin.
