    Jagger

    Once upon a time Jagger was on my list but that was years ago. Recently I heard it again and I'm debating if I should add it back to my list. If it's pronounced (jay-gur) I kinda like it. Although I don't think that's how it's pronounced. But if it's pronounced like Mick Jagger (jag-ur) I'm really not a fan.

    What's the correct way?

    and what do you think of Jagger?

    Well, Jay-gur and jag-ur sound exactly the same to me, so I'm not sure what you mean?

    My opinion: no.
    I'm not feeling incredibly profound at the moment. Check back later.

    I am pretty sure that Jagger would be pronounced like Mick Jagger (i.e., to rhyme with 'dagger'). Double letters usually indicate short vowel sounds, so I can't imagine anybody seeing Jagger and pronouncing it Jay-gur.

    Additionally, I think it sounds like it's trying way too hard to be cool and rock-star-ish. Sorry.

    Both ways are kind of the correct way to say it and it sounds exactly the same to me. But as for the using the name maybe in a middle spot yes as a first name not really fan.

    I agree with this.
