Cofactor My Name

Our names are very important to us. Each name has a story related to the person's cultural and familial background.

Pronunciation of names provokes constant uncertainty. For instance, how do you pronounce J. K. Rowling's surname? We know how she pronounces it — /ˈroʊlɪŋ/ — and that it rhymes with "bowling". However, her name is very often mispronounced as /ˈraʊlɪŋ/ so that it rhymes with "howling".

As we become a more multicultural society, names as simple as John will become less common.

The correct pronunciation of your name is whatever you decide. With Cofactor My Name, you can record the correct version of your name and present it to the world. My Name will then make it easy for others to register and remember the right pronunciation.
