I am still anxiously awaiting my new Botkier "Safari" bag. I'm embarrassed to admit, however, that I don't know how to pronounce "Botkier'. And of course I'm going to need to introduce it around once it arrives!

Anyone know? Is it "Bought-keer" or "BO-kier" or some other pronounciation??

Thanks!

Which language is that supposed to be? LOL Doesn't look like a French word to me, so no idea...

I just called them and listened to their message. It's pronounced Bought-key-air.

Mystery solved!

Personally, I pronounce it

bott-key-air.

That's just what makes sense to me. I'm not knowledgeable with the brand at all though.

It's not Bott-key-air! That's only possible if it's spelled "Botkierč".
Is Monica Botkier French? Then it's pronounced Boo-kjee.

I agree with Missisa07, I'm pretty sure it is Bott-key-air.....

I always thought it was pronounced Bot-kee-yay since Cartier is pronounce Car-tee-yay. I am assuming the name is French.

I asked a SA at Neiman's, and she said it's Bot-keer. So that's how I say it.
