20 brand names that you've been pronouncing wrong your entire life

We're all supposed to stay hip and current (and by saying hip and current, we are immediately not hip and current) and that means knowing about all the latest, coolest brands around.

The only problem is - much like when Gotye, Sufjan Stevens and SBTRKT started getting famous - no one ever actually tells you how you're meant to pronounce these often strange and exotic words.

In fact, you've probably been saying many of them wrong for years - and you didn't even know.

Check below with 20 commonly mispronounced brand names (compiled by Made By Oomph) - and make a mental note of any you didn't already know - just so you can correct someone else in future and feel superior to them.
