Many well-known people, places, and things have been mispronounced for so long that we've all gotten used to it. If you've ever wondered how to pronounce the names of famous people or popular food items, you're not alone. It can be embarrassing to say something incorrectly, especially if you've been confidently pronouncing it wrong for as long as you can remember.
