Well all know about Resident Evil Village’s Lady Dimitrescu at this point. She’s the star of the show and hot internet property. But, do we all know how to correctly pronounce her name?
I thought I did, at least. Lady Dimitrescu, with the “coo” at the end. Seems pretty obvious to me. That’s how I’ve always pronounced Romanian footballers with the same or similar surname. World Cup ’94 star Ilie Dumitrescu, for example. Brilliant former Chelsea fullback Dan Petrescu is another. Interviews with these footballers have always pronounced the “coo”, too. And so that’s what I did with Lady Dimitrescu.
But it appears I may be wrong.
