I still pronounce it with a soft G even though I know it is probably wrong.

It may have been asked once or a dozen times so I apologize if it has been discussed. Is the name Melges pronounced Melgez or Meljez? Thank you for the help.
Melges (pronounced mel•gis),
From the Melgis Website 2012....
You tube video interview with Buddy Melgis, who speaks the boat name several times with a hard G!
Amazing what 3 minutes of research can find.

I was at an airport once and a guy had a coat on with Melges on it, and I asked if he owned one. I pronounced it with a soft G, at which his reply was something along the line that anyone who knew anything would know it was pronounced with a hard g. Dumb ass...he may be correct, but really that response?
MELGES gear is available to anyone on their website. The Boyz from Zenda are perfect gentlemen. Your "dumb ass" won't be one of them.

I'm sure the apples fell pretty close to the tree.
you'd hope so - I like Buddy - otherwise, maybe the kids have feet of clay.......

That would be the singular.
Sure its not Meljizz?
The plural would be Melji

Seems to me the G is pronounced the same was as in Girl and generally Melges rhymes neither with "mel gus" nor with "Mel guess"
It is sorta in between
262 275 1110
None of this will help...
I have been in Austin for well over 30 years and half the twits at the yacht Club, some who have known me from day one, have visited my website, and have called my cell phone and answering machine still cannot figure out how to pronounce my name.
It is like they think I learned it wrong or something.
