Who knew that we've been pronouncing Ariana Grande's name wrong our entire existence lol! In a video of her in an interview, she was asked if she would keep Grande or change her name to Davidson, or maybe Grande-Davidson? She replied saying she would want to keep Grande because of her grandfather..but she pronounced it like Grandy! Her name is Ariana Grandy! lol I'm shocked. How nice do you have to be to let the whole world say your name wrong for years and you never attempted to correct anyone?! LOL
Chissy Teigen apparently is in the same boat. She revealed on Twitter that her last name is actually pronounced tie-gen, not tee-gen! She says she got tired of correcting people and gave up lol I FEEL YOU GIRL!

TSR Staff: Thembi! @ThembiTV_ _____________________________________ As someone who has a more “difficult” name to pronounce, I completely get the struggle of correcting people when they pronounce it incorrectly all the time—to just giving up on correcting them all together because they get it wrong—all the time. If you’re wondering, the “h” is silent, and it’s pronounced “Tem-bee”. _____________________________________ That being said, y’all know we’ve been pronouncing #ChrissyTeigen and #ArianaGrande’s names incorrectly all this time?! People were SHOOK on #Twitter when they heard Ari pronounce her own name. _____________________________________ What about y’all #Roommates? Do people pronounce your name incorrectly? Do you correct them when they do? Were you that kid in school that always knew that the sub had gotten to their name when he/she stopped and fixed his/her face during roll call?! Spill the tea! 🎥: @kiis1065 @kyleandjackieo
