    I used to think it was pronounced Fige, but I have learned that the correct way is Fie-gy. Kind of like Nike.

    Yeah, I've heard it like "Fay-gee" as well. Is that the right way?

    I've heard folks in a podcast pronounce it as 'fye-gee' (with a hard G), to rhyme with Nike as Kurt said above.

    But the spelling of the name reminds me of the German word Feige, which means 'fig', as in the fruit. If the name is of German origin, then it would be pronounced more or less as 'Fye-guh', with the final 'e' pronounced as a schwa (like the 'e' in 'battery').

    Huh, I imagined it as sounding like "fayjh".

    Okay, here's another one, since the ice on this topic is broken - David Aja. Is that "A-ha"? I've never met anyone with that name.

    yeah, it's AA-ha. Stress is on the first syllable. I guess it's a Spanish name. Cause my pal with the last name Aja is Cuban.
