How do you pronounce those Turkish names

Listening to non-Turkish newscasters struggle with how to pronounce the names of various Turkish personalities is tough. So, I decided to put together a quick guide for anyone who may wish to actually do some due dilligence.

This is an incomplete list that will likely be a perpetual work in progress just like the rest of the site. I do not necessarily endorse the views or work of people whose names are included in this list, nor am I opposed to those whom I may have overlooked. Similarly, for informational purposes, I will link to official pages where they exist, but I am not neither affiliated with, nor endorse, any of those links.

I am just trying to do my part in helping those who care avoid butchering the pronunciation of Turkish names ;-)
