I'm Justin Noel. I created Say My Name because so many people suffer from others mispronouncing their unique, beautiful names.

For example, my wife Grainne, has been called "Granny", "Grain", "Can't I just use your middle name?", and sometimes even worse 😬 throughout her life.

With Say My Name, everyone can easily learn how to say her name properly.

No more awkward introductions and no more embarrassing moments!

If you know someone with a unique or difficult to pronounce name, consider gifting them a subscription to Say My Name.

Why Say My Name Isn't Free

Most "free" services earn money from ads. However, these services aren't really free.

Advertisements compromise your privacy and enable big tech companies to track your online activities.

Serving ads consumes vast amounts of energy, water, and mined resources and has a huge environmental impact.

I'm an independent web developer committed to making a sustainable income from Say My Name.

I hope you'll agree that "free" isn't worth the price and agree to pay a small subscription fee for such a useful service.

Have Questions?

If your question isn't answered here, feel free to send your questions to [email protected].

What should I say in my name recordings?

The first, short recording should only have your properly pronounced name. There is no need to say it particularly slowly as the site will let customers play it at slower speeds.

The second, long recording can be any information about you and your name that you would like to share - it's meaning, origin, or maybe a funny story.

Can I purchase a SayMyName account for someone else as a gift?

Are you hiring and want to show a candidate your team is empathetic, welcoming, and really wants to help them succeed?

Their family gave them their beautiful, unique name. You can give them the gift of proper pronunciation.

Coming Soon: Purchase a gift code for your friends, family, or (potential) co-workers. You can send them the gift code yourself or we'll do it for you. In the meantime, please reach out to [email protected]  to coordinate this manually.

Discounted, bulk purchases are available for large organizations that truly respect all of their employees.

Can I have a family account for my kids, partner, etc?

Yes, you can! Just not automatically right now 😢.

Discounted rates are available for family accounts. The creator of the account will pay regular price. All additional names in that group will be steeply discounted.

The creator of the account will manage all audio recording uploads for the whole family.

Once you have created the primary account, please send an email to [email protected] to add additional family members to your account.

Note: Family accounts are not intended for businesses or other uses outside of families.

What link will I use to let people learn my name?

Initially, the link to your SayMyName page will be something like:

saymyname.how/JD-0382

As soon as we have a safe and reliable way to determine someone is reserving their real name and not "name squatting", you will be able to purchase and use your name in the link like:

saymyname.how/Jane-Doe

or

saymyname.how/Jane-Doe-123

Because all links must be unique, personalized addresses may require additional characters to distinguish between those with the same name. Personalized addresses will be available on a first-come first-serve basis.
