Does anyone know how to ptronounce this? I've traweled the net and cant find an answer. Sorry, this is a rubbish topic, but im desperate!
by the by, i think its german for lion, but i also heard its spanish. no idea!

to explain a pronunciation in writing, but here goes:LourvayWhen saying the word, try to make the 'vay' part sound like a cross between 'vay' and 'way'.try it, and you'll get the hang of it.It's a common German surname, and means 'Lion'.
Thankyou both!I'm stil a bit confused tho. the voice on the yourdictionary site seems to be saying lole or lowel, or even just low. How do you hear it, Blackhat...?FE, do you speak the language? i guess it kind of makes sense, given the W, but how do you get the V...?Anyway, thanks for your responses, i didnt expect to get far with this.
sorry, i put that very badly. i suspect i answered my own question there. i should have said something along the lines of: how do you get the vay sound? should the E be accented...?
Try spelling it pho-net-ee-cally
Don't worry about accents. Lourvay or lurvay.
In German the 'o' would have an umlaut over it (2 horizontal dots over it) The pronunciation would be ler-ve...long first e as in learner, the 'w' pronounced as a 'v' and the final 'e' short as in vest.G
The pronounciation of the "e", which are at the end of German nouns falls half and between "uh" and "ah"
so everyone pretty much agrees with the FE on the pronunciation then?Thanks all for your contributions. i'll tick this now but if anyone has anything else...
