    La Zar Ee Deez

    La ("a" as said in keyword "Apple")

    Zar (r-controlled "a" as in "BARge")

    Ee (long "e" sound as in keyword "Easy")

    Deez (rhymes with "squEEZE")

    Now it can be difficult to say it fully properly, so it is acceptable and common to make the second syllable a schwa sound as follows:

    La Zuh Ree Deez

    Other facts about Mike: His real first name as spelled with English letters is Mihal.

    While he is considered a Canadian, he was born in Istanbul, Turkey.

    I believe it's Laz-uh-REE-dis.

    What I want to know is whether it's Bal-SEE-lee or Bal-silly.

    Thanks man! Pronouncing his name has been a nightmare all this time! This fills that void in my life that no amount of material possessions could fill. I am whole now. I could die gladly at the moment. :P

    No seriously, thanks. Lol. You learn something new every day.
