  • Hagar the Horrible

    How do you pronounce Hagar the Horrible? Is it pronounced the same as Sammy Hagar, or Hagg-er?

    All through my childhood, I pronounced it the second way, but after learning how Sammy Hagar pronounces his last name, I think I might have been wrong all of those years.

    I always pronounced it as you did but turns out I was wrong as well.

    About a minute in.


    But there's also this interview with the creator's son.

    Fairfax, Va.: How do you pronounce Hagar?

    Chris Browne: I pronounce it Hay-gar. My brother, Chance, who draws "Hi and Lois" and I came up with it as a nickname for Dad when we were kids. It's a made-up word, so anyway you pronounce it is correct!

        Huh. I always pronounced it "Hah-garr", soft 'a' sound.

        Aren't all names largely made-up words? I like people to pronounce my name the way I do.
