    How do you pronounce "Haiko de Poel, Jr."
    Let's lighten up things - Happy New Year!!

    Help me with pronunciation spellings please.

    Haiko de Poel, Jr.

    is it:
    "high co" ("co" like coke) "D" "Pole"

    or:
    "Hay - koo" (like a cooing baby) "Day" " Pool"

    or
    "Ha" (like "hat") "KO" "da" "Pow" "L"

    or
    "Hake" (like rake- with silent "o") "d" "Po" (with silent "el")

    Or is it just "Junior" ?

    Interesting question. I have always pronounced it:
    High - Co (as in Coke) de Po el Jr.

    I have heard it pronounced many other ways.

    Haiko? Set us straight bro!

    Courage! What a great question. I've wanted to ask for a number of years, but didn't.

    I think I asked Lox once a while back.

    Heck, I've even talked to the H on the phone, though was careful to just call him Hy-co, which I prbably almost got right

    I would have been a goner on "dee pool" though...

    In Español, I always say: Jaico.

    In English: Hi Co.

    Just like I am Sal in Español, but in English I would be Salt.

    Sorry for my ignorance, but is Haiko de Poel a Spanish name? I keep wanting to think it's Japanese for some reason, at least partially lol

    It's a Dutch name, I'm half Norwegian and half Dutch but born in Mexico, thus the español.

    See this is what's so great about this place. People ask the little questions that have been rattling around in other's minds for years. I have to admit to "shooting-from-the-hip", as well. And always ready to be corrected.

    We silly european muts get to have all the fun, hegh, Haiko?

    BTW - My very German last name (Kautt)is pronounced "kowt".
    Which means to act like a bird or something (go figure) ... Man, they must have drank alotta beer back then.

    Odd, I asked him once how to pronounce his name and he said

    yoor maj-uh-stee



    or...

    no one can pronounce it, that's why we legally changed it to "H-man"

    HAIKO was not found in this database. Names that sound similar to HAIKO:

    HEIKO

    Gender: Masculine

    Usage: German, Frisian, Dutch

    Pronounced: HIE-ko (German, Dutch) [key]
    Frisian pet form of HENRIK

    Near as I can tell... it means henry's pet

    At first I thought Haiko was Japanese but have been educated otherwise. I am curious about the quote in your signature. Here's what I found:

    Full Name Disraeli, Benjamin
    Biography British politician; British prime minister 1868, 1874-1880

    Now I know that Haiko isn't old to have personally known Disraeli! And I don't remember him from my world history class.

    Care to enlightness us oh affiliate zen master??

    I've always read it to mean - Have the right purpose*, never give up and you will succeed!

    *Purpose can mean many things, including attitude, raison d'etre, cause or just impetus.

    Disraeli - there are many great quotes and lessons from this genius, you can read more about him at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Benjamin_disreali
    Continued Success,

    Haiko

    Cute Billy,

    Actually it is a nick name for Henry, but since I'm part Norwegian I used to say it meant "King" because of King Haakon (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haakon_VII_of_Norway).

    From my french studies, I loved the idiom when I heard it - "reason for being".

    20 Geno bucks to the first person who can conjugate "etre"...

    *disclaimer: I'm in no position to spend Geno's money, but it's the most popular form of currency on this site. Plus, I love giving Geno a hard time, as most of you know...

    You forgot to mention the tense, Kev. If it is Présent you're looking for, here we go:

    je suis
    tu es
    il/elle/on est ils
    nous sommes
    vous êtes
    ils/elles sont

    So do I myself get the GBs for the first time in life?!?!

    And to explain what his name means:
    'de' is Dutch for 'the'
    and poel means pond or puddle (shallow, stagnant water). It's not a very uncommon name. Haiko would probably be most uncommon in the province of Friesland where they have their own language and weird names .

    So he's King Haakon the Pond.
