Pronounce My Name

If you are wondering how to pronounce my name, know that you are not the first one and won't be the last either.

An easy way is to go for the English (old-fashioned) version of my name, Agatha—it gives me an early-XXth-century upper-class air, but I will happily answer to that.

If you want to go for the French pronunciation, this might help:

/agat/   or   ag[riculture] + at
