chadtizzle, arabic is spoken in so many countries and so many dialects so things like these names will be said differently depending who you talk to just like some words me other things (some places shisha means the hookah it self, one of my friends knows it like this so when im around him say tobacco instead of shisha).

even the brand mya is pronounced in multiple ways (me-ah and my-ah). if your close most people will know what you mean

give or take, the "right" way would bed who ever made the brands way of saying it probably but since it is a proper name (at least from what i have been told, it translates to "the fakher") there is one "right" way but you will not be able to cary that in just writing on a package.

I TRY and I TRY and I TRY!

It just comes out: "I'll Fuk Her" and so be it, I just don't have the proper accent to say it .. but you all know what I am trying to say!

Thanks TheEgyptian, I will listen to that and try my best in the future, but if I never get it right .. it is just because I can't .. but I do try!

I have had the worst time with it. I have at least gotten it to the point where I can say it to my friend from the Sudan and He knows what I am talking about on the first try. It took a minute to get there. Best way for me is just not to think about it. If I think about it and really try to do it right I screw it up. If I don't think about it out it comes. It goes something like this. Al (like Al Bundy or Call me Al if you are into older music). Fu (like Fudge or Fuck or Fudd) KH (like you have a hair ball but not so dramatic like the way X is pronounced in Russian kind of a hard H) er (as though you were trying to think of what to say or misspoke er I mean).
