Wow that was actually a bit surprising cause I've mentally being calling you jeeeeny (not jenny) for all these years now.
In my language if you have a single vowel followed by 2 consonants, like in "Jenny", you pronounce the vowel fast, if you only have a single vowel followed by 1 consonant (e.g. Geny) you make the vowel sound longer. Of course if you have 4 consonants following a vowel you conquer the universe on a mosquito.

@Bliz
Yeah, I've come to terms that most people mispronounce my name. Which is ironic, since one of the reasons I've chosen it all those years ago was because I wanted a short name so that no one would misspell it.

Anyway, it's Geny as in Great.

Well, that's on you Mary Jane, since most of the words in English that stars with G + E, the G is pronounced like the G in Gem. Gem, genius, generate, geography, genuine, germ, gear, general, gesture...

The only two examples I can think of at the moment where it's pronounced like the G in Great are get and gestapo.

I'd say germ and gear are also pronounced like the g in great.

Not germ, but yes, turns out I mispronounced gear all these years. I could swear I heard it pronounced like I did many times. I wonder if it's a common mistake, at least in here.

Yes it's definitely too are (said in a pirate's voice) to undo the damage!

Edit: What I learned about pronunciation from HC is that the 'e' in penalize is pronounced like the 'e' in penis, and not like the 'e' in penalty.

I think in British English, the 'e' in penalize is sometimes said with a short e instead of a long e.

British is slightly more phonetic than American. Our dialect is bat**** crazy. Like we say 'glacier' as 'glasher' instead of 'glassier'. We make the 'sh' sound, because it's more pimp that way.

Well I for one, always assumed Geny was pronounced with a G such as Galaad, but that is because I am purely and simply awesome.
