Guy Lafleur

Updated February 23, 2017 | Factmonster Staff

The Question:

Hi, can you tell me how to pronounce Guy Lafleur's name? Is it Guy as in "Hey look at that guy" or as in gee, (Guy Carbonneau of the Stars says his name like this). And how do you say Lafleur? Thanks.

The Answer:

His first name is pronounced "gee" with a hard "G" sound (like the g in "goat" rather than the g in "George.") For English-speakers his last name is pronounced "la-flur" (but when it's spoken in French it sounds much prettier).
