How do you get "Sinjin" out of Saint John?


Now that the show is on like 5 times per day, I noticed this again.

I could possibly see Satjon (SAinT JOhN)or SINJON (SaINJOhN, but Sinjin makes no sense since there is only one "i" between both names.

Next, who names their kid Saint John? Can you imagine being called "Saint" in school?

Sin Jin is the way they pronounce Saint John in the UK, and it carried over here. As an aside, it was a stupid name to pin on Kanye West's new son, both for teasing reasons and for the implication that Kanye named the kid so because he thinks he's a god. Just sayin'

FYI, if you watch any of the British versions of "Jane Eyre" you'll hear the name of the character St. John Rivers pronounced that way.

And they pronounce Jane Eyre as "Junnuh"

Thanks for the info. That would make sense if either the show or the character were British.

It isn't pronounced Sin Jin, it is pronounced Sinjon and I've heard it plenty of times in reference to a person's name, not the saint.

I guess the way other things get corrupted like Saint Nicholas became Santa Claus.

Europeans would pronounce Saint like SANT...it's weird.

That's because it's the french pronunciation.

Well how do you get "Nom sain" out of "Do you know what I am saying?". My guess is by lazily mumbling.
