How the devil do you pronounce Sonic Mayhem's real name

Recommended Posts

Sascha Dikiciyan

 

Someone who is good at non-English names please help me pronounce this. My family is dying.

 

Spoiler

Okay not really but I'm giving a presentation tomorrow on Mick Gordon, with whom Sascha has worked (if you saw the D44M performance at the Game Awards, that's him on the synths). So I will probably have to say his name. And I kind of don't wanna look like a dickhead like that time I put the stress on the wrong syllable of "Aristophanes" back in high school.

Sah-shuh Dick-is-see-yon? Emphasis wherever you like, I suppose. I don't really see it being pronounced any other way.

If it's pronounced "Germanly", then it's actually pretty simple. All the 'a' are pronounced like the 'a' in "father", all the 'i' are pronounced like the 'i' in "fish".

Thanks, all - that all helps.

 

This probably should've been a status update, huh. Oh, well.

He's German, but is surname is definitely not German. Maybe Armenian?

I am not sure if the c in Dikiciyan is pronounced like "ts" or like "ch".

No way. Threads are the new blogs forum.

Yeah, no way I'm using status updates for any sort of serious discussion. That stuff disappears from the page in like a day never to be seen again, who's even going to notice that?
