Hello, I just saw Flamu and other streamers pronounce this ship as if it was in English. While I checked it out and it's "Bagratyon" (long "O"). I know this kind of info isn't that important but hey, why not.

Maybe happens because it has an english style ending.

bagraTION ... pronounciaTION.

 

Otherwise i dont see a reason to pronounce it like that. Id say it as its written, which is probably not 100% correct either, but still better than the english version :cap_haloween:

I do find it funny that flamu says Bagration as if it rhymed with carnation, but then he admits himself that he butchers the pronunciation.

Use the english word EON (denoting a long period of time) as the correct way to pronounce it, so 'BAGRATEON' is the way. The name comes from the famous Russian Military general who served in the Napoleonic wars and was a subordinate of Marshal Suvorov. 

 

I did smile when I saw Flamu's video and he has the humility to realise it, which many other CCs dont...

I have witnessed some other CCs too doing some weird pronunciation of several other ships' names, eg. Amagi, Graf Spee, Jaguar... But AFAIK they are not obliged by their contracts with WG not to show their ignorance.

I keep calling it MRE to keep things simple. A bag ration.

I've seen people use P-Bag as well :Smile_teethhappy:

'Whore Chester' says hi. Des Moines. Boise. Many French and some Japanese ship names also suffer terribly on a regular basis.

Błyskawica is suffering the most man. No ship ever was so mispronounced. The only non Polish people who pronounce it well are Aerroon and MoeLykit. But I can fully understand why.

Yeah, noticed it too, but mispronouncing names is common and always was, because it's WoWS, not Duolingo, so people aren't here to learn how to speak a different language.

Bagrateon or Bagratyon works, I guess, to describe the pronounciation. At least of the ending.

 

Now, if people would get Roon right...

And that's tame compared to your captain, who shall not be mentioned. Even after listening to the ship name on PolskieRadio, the remaining problem for me is the "y"

 

Bł -> y <- skawica

 

Is it pronounced similar to an "i" and if not, what's the difference?

It's different, see it on Google translate how it's pronounced.

Bag Ration - two separate words, any other pronunciation is heresy!

Hearing the mispronounced Swedish DD names recently has been painful, particularly from the American CCs who just don't seem to vaguely care about getting the names right.
