We are about to go eat some YUMMY gyros. But, before I go, I was curious. How does everybody else pronounce it? We say “Euros”. What do you say?
Please forgive my attempt at spelling different pronunciations…

Euros. I didn’t know anyone said anything else. Yum.

That is such a tricky word for me. I don’t know the correct pronunciation at all. I say Geros though. I usually just try to avoid saying it haha, but they are so good. Enjoy yours!

I say “Jy-ros” when I’m in the US, at my neighborhood Greek diner, etc. But when I was in Greece, I definitely said “Gee-ros” (like “golf”), since I’m pretty sure that’s more authentic than the way most Americans say it.

I usually say “Guy-row”. Or occasionally “Gear-row”.

I’m pretty sure it’s supposed to be more of a throaty “H” sound…like ygheeros (I have no idea how to type it out.)

I believe it is supposed to be ‘yee-rows’ but most people I know actually say ‘jy-rows’.

I say “yee-row”. (Voted “Euros” as it was the closest.)

“Gee-row-s” That’s how my greek friend and my greek professor say it so I’m sticking with that.
