Gal Gadot took the world by storm with her performance as the lead of Wonder Woman, and she’s probably one of the most sought-out actresses in Hollywood right now. Funny thing is, though Gal Gadot’s name is popping up everywhere, it’s one of the most mispronounced words of the year.

According to CNN, Babbel, a language-learning app, commissioned the US Captioning company to find out what were the most used words in 2017 that people were having a hard time saying. Along with words like “bokeh,” “Nuclear,” “Weinstein,” and “Pyongang,” Gadot’s name made the list.

Here’s a supercut of the right pronunciation of Gadot’s name to help get it stuck in your brain.

With Gadot being such a high-profile actress now, you’d think that everyone would know how to say her name properly; luckily for her, a lot of celebrities have had names that are hard to pronounce. Just ask Saorsie Ronan, Joe Manganiello, and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau.

Though Justice League was a box-office disappointment, a lot of praise still went to Gadot’s performance as Diana. She’ll be returning as Wonder Woman in the sequel which will also be directed by Patty Jenkins, and is said to be set during the 1980s during the Cold War.

Wonder Woman 2 is set to come out November of 2019.
