NEW YORK -- In the week since she was named as President Obama's nominee to the Supreme Court, Judge Sonia Sotomayor's name has been on a lot of people's lips.
But people have been saying it differently. She pronounces her own name soh-toh-my-YOR', with the accent on the final syllable. But plenty of TV news anchors have put the accent on the first syllable or come up with some other variation.
Sotomayor was born in the Bronx, but she pronounces her name with Spanish-language intonation, with a half-trill on the "r" at the end of her last name.
