PronounceYourNameSome Facebook users are being prompted to provide the proper pronunciations of their names.

Reader Lynette Young shared the screenshot above with SocialTimes, writing in a tweet:

Facebook just asked me to teach it how to properly pronounce my name. Has anyone else had this happen?

The prompt in the screenshot reads:

Help people know the right way to say your name. How do you pronounce your name?

Three options were provided for both users’ first and last names, as well as the ability for users to add their own pronunciations, and an audio preview was provided at the bottom.
