How to pronounce 'Santander'?

On the telly, they say 'Santan dare'.

Thats not how it's spelt. If the French want us to call it that, they should rename it 'Santandaire'.

I think they are Spanish and the general pronunciation is as you say San tan dare.

I'd pronounce it San-tan-duh.

Yes they are Spanish and are sponsors for Ferrari and McLaren

The correct pronunciation is 'San tan dare' as suggested by TonyV

I just find it annoying.

  rdave13 00:21 14 May 2011

Graham. Oh dear. 'San tan dare' then. You've converted one so that's one less thing to be annoyed about and I'm sure you'll sleep better. About the rest of the UK's population, then, I have no idea.

Whatever the way you pronounce the name, I noticed that they had a bit of a bashing again in this weeks Watchdog program.

If you have a major stores credit card that is administered by Santander, then check to see if there is a monthly £10.00 'dormancy' fee for not using the card. Apparently Santander will not use this extra channel for gaining revenue and profit, but it still remains as part of their terms and conditions for card usage?.

Dormancy fees are being considered by ALL the major credit card companies not just San Tan Der Dohhh!

"Whatever the way you pronounce the name, I noticed that they had a bit of a bashing again in this weeks Watchdog program."

Given my experience with them - they 'lost' our money for over 6 months and denied having it even when proof was provided - they deserve every bit of pressure to get themselves sorted that can be given. Even their compensation rates - worked out at less than the interest lost - is not good.

Needless to say I no longer have any dealings with them and all my family have followed as they had no wish to risk the experience I had. So they can pronounce 'Santander' any way they want.
