For the record, my name is Anne-Geri’ Fann. My FIRST name is Anne-Geri’. It is pronounced “Ann-juh-ree” and the apostrophe/accent mark/whatever that is – is after the “i”. Again, I don’t know why. My parents, although both very educated people, have never given me a valid linguistic answer. I can only assume they didn’t learn how to spell until they were both 35. “Anne” is for my mom, who is “Anne." Geri' is for my dad, who is Gerald (which is pronounced “Jurrl” if you are his West Texas family). He now goes by his second name, Glen. Most people call me “Angie" because it’s a whole lot easier, although it’s not on my birth certificate….
