How to correctly pronounce Mircea

  • mir is more like “MIR space station” or “meer”
  • cea has a hidden “h” and is more like “cha” (as in “cha cha” the dance)
  • r is trilled like in most Romance languages (e.g. Spanish)
  • e and a have their usual Latin readings - think of “lecture” and “father”
  • So, a somewhat correct pronunciation is “Meercha”
