How Do You Pronounce This Name

Recommended Posts

It can also almost be dā, with the slightest hint of on h mid vowel.

Proper nouns are often pronounced at the preference of bearer, rather than by any particular phonetic rule.

I like to fool airline passengers into thinking I have my own swimming pool by painting a large blue rectangle on my patio!

Without Googling I know the M is for Mooney, and the first for city names related to Socata’s origin, but that’s where my memory fails me...

Daher might be a common German name but the Daher corp. is definitely French. The founder was born September 29th, 1854 in Marseille.

 At the 12 second mark, the young lady pronounces it correctly in French.

If you wanna be picky, since the Yanks got there first with that designation, it stand for Torpedo Bomber, Motors, it being the alternate designation for the Grumman TBF Avenger for variants built at the shadow General Motors factory in WW2, these being TBMs rather than TBFs.

But, if you mean TBM in relation to that 'French Mooney', then TBM stands for the place where Daher are based - previously SOCATA, and if you go back far enough, originally Morane-Saulnier - which is Tarbes, with an M for Mooney added to it, to form TBM. This is because the 850 is an evolution of a Mooney design, and Mooney eventually became part of SOCATA.

Tarbes is in the very southern tip of France near the Pyrenees and is home to quite a bit of transport-related business in France. Some of SOCATA's production used to be near Paris when they made stuff like the (also very nice) Rallye, Tampico, Trinidad and Tobago models, but's nearly all down in Tarbes now.
