For a reason unbeknownst to be, several people have been asking me how to pronounce my names and screenname in the last few days. So to quench everybody's thirst of useless knowledge (and because I have no other use for journals right now), here it goes.
My first name, Yves, is pronounced like the girls' name Eve. The E and S letters are silent (as is half of the French language's alphabet).
My last name, Bourgelas, is pronounced Boh-r-jell-ah. It's very French, and also very French-sounding. The S is also silent.
My screenname is a pun on Boogeyman. A friend of mine used to call me all sorts of variants of my last name and one day this one came out, and I decided to appropriate it. For the pronunciation, you just elongate the O sound and add an R after to make the correct word. There's no S in that word, but if there were one, it would probably be silent.
That'll be all.
