      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

How do you pronounce Bachar?

Recommended Posts

I think I've been pronouncing his name wrong. I'm not making a strange joke. I want to get his name right.

 

 

Thanks.

Hmmm, I'm in agreement with Off White: "Backer" (rhymes with Green Bay PACKER.)

 

Not Bach-Har (rhymes with Jean-Luc Picard)

We had a family of Bachar's down the road where I grew up. They pronounced it BOCK'R. I would think the closer you get to Chicago, the more that O grows a little tail at the end.

 

Just thought I'd provide some critical input to this important discussion.

I lived in Mammoth Lakes, CA years ago and bumped into John Bachar from time to time. I even jammed with him once (he didn't like my guitar playing). Anyway, people who knew him personally pronounced his name "backer", as in "I am a backer of CascadeClimbers.com". However, I never heard John Bachar pronounce his last name, so I cannot be sure.
