The real sound and pronunciation is not “ZAH-RAH” or “ZA-RA” but actually it is more like “tsah-dah.” Yeah, honestly.
We totally understand that, the pronunciation of the famous fashion brand Zara seems pretty obvious and easy. Two constonants and two vowels — what could go wrong? It’s “Zah-rah,” right?
But No! It’s actually “tsah-dah.”
Basical the brand is based in Arteixo, Spain (though it’s owned by the Galicia-based multinational conglomerate Intidex). In Arteixo, the letter “Z” in “Zara” sounds more like a “ts” sound and the letter “r” sounds more like a light “d.” Your can improve by saying Tah-dah, but actually it is “TSAH-DAH”.
