Though I consider myself a sage with age If you call me 'tayj',
I will be filled with rage
And roll around like a groggy soggy doggy
For my name is pronounced "TOGGY"
Firstly, I suppose my life long interest
in language begins with the pronunciation of my name.
In standard American English, the spelling of my name is often pronounced
by most people like “tayj” as the poem states, but likewise it is pronounced “toggy”.
The name is Northern Germanic in origin and pronunciation of the name varies
from region to region, from country to country across Scandinavia.
The closest Norwegian pronunciation contains vowels that the English language
has abandoned (though there might possibly be a dialect in Northern England that
utilizes common North Germanic vowels not present in standard English).
The easiest pronunciation for an American is as I have written it.
Though I argued as a child that mine was an authentic pronunciation.
It is not how actual Norwegians pronounce it.
I’m okay with this as the name changes due to the Germanic dialect continuum
(of which American English includes), thus ‘toggy’ I argue is an authentic
pronunciation of the name.
Though I cannot confirm, I’ve read on some websites that the name translate
to ‘the heir’, and the name is more common among older generations,
Walter’ or “Herman’ being cultural-idiomatic equivalents.
