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.
