The Standard for Correct Name Pronunciations

Help us build content on The Name Engine.

We're looking for expert Contributors to provide audio pronunciations in all categories. If you find of value, please consider joining with us to help keep it updated and relevant.

Frequently Asked Questions

What qualifications do I need to become a Contributor?

We are ideally looking for individuals with firsthand knowledge of the names being added (i.e. team PA announcers, play-by-play broadcasters, etc.). But anyone can become a Contributor as long as the names are thoroughly researched and MP3 files are of sufficient quality.

I've registered. What happens next?

You can now login and begin to use the admin page immediately. Please keep in mind that you will need to record MP3 files using a separate program and then upload them from your computer.

Can I contribute beyond adding new pronunciations?

Yes. We also need help maintaining names already featured on the site. This includes changing the team category when a player is traded, updating the status info of an individual, etc.

I’ve registered and made some updates. Why are they not appearing?

All updates are subject to review by our editors. As soon as they are confirmed as accurate, they will be activated on the live site.

Can I add new categories to the site?

Yes. We are looking to expand The Name Engine with pronunciations of all types. So adding new categories is highly encouraged!
