    My name looks simple to pronounce but half the people who say it get it wrong.

    Jonny Simon: The 'Simon' is said in the French pronunciation like See-mON / Si-mON.

    Here it is in audio if you need it: https://translate.google.com/#en/de/Simon
    If you play the audio in German in google translate the woman says it right. For some reason the French woman they used sounds drunk...

    In my culture/background it's wrong if it's said like 'Symon' (we all laugh at people who say it like that lol) but obviously most English speaking pronunciations are like that especially here in Australia, but yeah I hate it when said like that and it's wrong anyway haha.

    Please broadcasters, Shopping Eletronico is our title sponsor, so when you are going to call us in the broadcast, just call us by the team name Snow Schatten
