Team Cymru – the correct pronounciation

On a completely different note whilst I was at the Euro-IX conference last week someone gave a talk that included something about Team Cymru. Team Cymru are a top bunch of guys in the cyber security space.

However there is something that urgently needs addressing about the organisation and that is how you pronounce their name. I’ve been hearing Team Kim-roo which is understandable but totally incorrect. I’m sure that the good folk at Team Cymru will not mind me saying that the correct way to pronounce the name is Come-ree. It is the way that the Welsh would say it.

There. I’ve got that one off my chest. Cymru am byth!

  1. Diolch yn fawr, Trefor, for the pronunciation post! We’ve come a long way since the early days, when folks called us “Team Sim-roo.” 🙂 You’ll find the correct pronunciation on our About page, courtesy of another Welshman who thankfully corrected me (I learned the incorrect “kim-roo” as a lad) years ago. Have a great day!
