The pronunciation of Jorgen’s name is a highly debated topic at times, and I’d like to make a poll to see what people think.

I don’t care one way or the other. I listen to the audible books though because it’s the only way I have time for much reading any more and they use the hard J sound. That being said, it reminds me or a more German/Scandinavian name which would have the Y sound so…

I pronounce it with a hard "J", which my wife made fun of me for while watching the latest season of Great British Baking Show since there is a contestant with the same name.

I think it should have a soft j, but pronounce it with a hard one.
