As someone whose last name is Uwumarogie, I know the struggle of trying to get people to pronounce your name right. But in Hollywood, it comes with the territory, and often, famous folks just let people pronounce their surnames and first names however they want–as long as they support their projects. But since folks just learned how to say Zach Galifianakis’ name and Quvenzhané Wallis’, we thought we’d help you out with a few others you might be saying wrong.

Karrueche Tran

Though I think quite a few people know how to say this woman’s name right but choose to say it wrong to be mean (i.e., the folks who call her “Coochie Tran”), Chris Brown’s girlfriend (who you can say is at least infamous if not famous) pronounces her name “kuh-roo-chee.”

Check out a clip of her introducing herself at the 3:00 mark.
