Phonetic Spelling

How to Phonetically Respell Your Name

Step 1: Start with your full name as it appears in SSOL. Remove any names you do not wish to have read and add any nicknames and suffixes you do want read.

Step 2: Identify common names (such as Tom or Johnson) that do not need to be phoneticized, and keep these as they are.

Step 3: For the remaining names, try to think of any common words that are pronounced similarly, and swap these in. Example: Albert Kao becomes Albert Cow. (Watch out for words that could have multiple pronunciations! For example, “bow” could sound like “boh” as in “bow and arrow” or “bough” as in “bow wow.”)

Step 4: Use the respelling guide to determine how to indicate the remaning sounds in your name. Example: If the name Bowman begins with the sound in “bow and arrow,” write Boh-man.

Step 5: Separate the syllables with a dash. Example: Amy Nostdahl would be written as Amy Nahst-doll.

Step 6: Capitalize any syllables that should be emphasized. Example: Adebola Adeniran becomes Ah-DAY-buh-la Ah-DEN-i-ran.

Phonetic respelling will be used to assist in the correct pronunciation of your name at the ceremony.
For additional assurance that your name will be pronounced correctly, you may also submit an audio recording for our name readers. When recording, please speak slowly and crisply. Tools to create the audio file include a voice memo app on a smartphone and the Microsoft Sound Recorder available on many PCs.
Files must be less than 2 MB.
Allowed file types: avi mov mp3.
Notify a Family Member or Friend
At your request, Columbia University will notify a family member, friend, or someone from Columbia that has impacted your undergraduate experience of your selection for a Leadership and Excellence Award. An email, including the date and time of the ceremony, will be sent to this person. If you do not wish to have anyone notified, please leave the field blank.
