Model Names

I'm sure many of you are just as guilty as I am of model name mis-pronunciation, but how was I supposed to know that Werbowy is pronounced Ver-bow-vy or that Tiiu is Tee-you? Well, heres a list of how to say some model's names... (the words in uppercase are the syllables you put the emphasis on)

Left to right: Cintia Dicker, Gemma Ward, Adriana Lima, Miranda Kerr (click on pics to enlarge)

Gemma Ward - Very easy to say! JEM-mah WAR-d
Daria Werbowy - DAR-ee-yah Ver-BOW-vy
Iekeliene Stange - Ee-kel-EEN-ah Stange
Anja Rubik - AN-ya ROO-bik
Tiiu Kuik - TEE-you KU-ik (if you say it fast, it sounds like quick)
Natalia Vodianova - Na-TAH-lee-ah Vod-ee-ah-NO-va
Let me know if you have any more and I'll add them to the list! Oh and please correct me if I am wrong...
