one of the most popular Vietnamese last names and basically no one except viet people can pronounce it. The most simple way to say it is putting an n sound to the word when. This last name is every teacher's worst nightmare.

A tiny, almost imperceptible cough, usually hidden behind a mask due to; emphysema, asthma, allergies or the dreaded COVID, so as not to alarm others to your potential of being “the infected.”
I was walking through the grocery store and I had a tickle in my throat but I didn’t want people to think I was contagious so I let out a microcough.

Nguyen is a Vietnamese last name that no one can pronounce correctly, not even high school teachers who have probably had 19 Nguyen’s last year. About 60% of Vietnamese you meet will have this last name.

Almost every person who has tried to pronounce this name has said “nah-goo-jen?”.

NO HONEY ITS NOT THAT HARD TO SAY IT.

It’s prounounced “when”, yes “when”. Well now that I think about it, “when” is the dumbed down version. Well it’s the closest that people can get, so i’ll go with it.

And NO, not all Nguyen’s are related, so for the last time, VIVIAN IS NOT MY COUSIN!
Oh Buddha, another Nguyen Family Renunion! Someone pass the rice, because i might faint.

In olden times King Nguyen forced people to change their last name to Nguyen. If they did not they were killed.
Thats why so many Viets have their last name as Nguyen. Some people that don't have their last name as Nguyen might have changed their last name after the reign of the King Nguyen ended.
Nguyen is a common last name to Viets.
