Re: looking for Guifan, Guefen, Gefen, Geffen and Yaroshevsky #ukraine


Carlos Glikson
 

Sofia Marta GUIFAN is looking for GUIFAN, GUEFEN, GEFEN, GEFFEN and
YAROSHEVSKY. Just a few lines to mention that the “U” in GUI and GUE - as
read in Spanish - is a “mute” letter.

So if the GUIFAN surname is read or written by Spanish readers, GUI will
sound as the “gi” in gift. The “u” strengthens the “g” and has no “u” sound.
GUE in GUEFEN would sound as the “ge” in get. And GUEFEN would be
pronounced GEFEN or GEFFEN, two of the variants Sophy mentions.

Hope this helps and is not confusing!
