10 Fix Siri’s pronunciation
The iPhone built-in digital assistant Siri is almost as good for unintentional hilarity as she is for giving directions or making a hands-free call something. It seems like she has difficulty pronouncing even simple names and common names are bound to provide her with even more trouble.
It can be as funny as it is annoying, but if you want to, you can teach Siri how to pronounce names including yours.
Correctly simply say hey Siri show contact followed by the name when she brings up the contact accompanied by her erroneous pronunciation just say hey Siri you pronounced it wrong. Siri will ask how the name is pronounced and when you tell her, she will generate a list of possible pronunciations with a play button for each one select the one that sounds the best and she will pronounce it that way from then on. This works for your own name as well, just ask hey Siri who am I and follow the same steps.
