is it:

    1. Doggee
    2. Dohjz
    3. Doga



From the co-founder of Dogecoin, it's pronounced "dohj". Listen to him say it and explain where it came from: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kVDcOI0-gdQ


The co-founder of Dogecoin is not responsible for the start or proliferation of the meme. Which comes from a joke about Vogue (the magazine)thus pronounced as such.


That is not the correct origin of Doge http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/doge

PS it's pronounced Dohj


The video on the know your meme page for Doge will clarify it: http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/doge


Dogue. Like vogue.


This is the correct answer


No, it's with a soft g, not a hard g. Doje.

I went with the Japanese pronunciation "DOH-GEY"


It uses the same pronunciation as "Quixote".


Why could you not Google this? The answer to this is everywhere.


Agreed, but looking at the answers to the question here, the wrong answers are just as present


2. Dohjz - look up homestarrunner doge


Doje "Doe-hey"

As in, "doje deer, a female deer"


doge -> dog-e -> doggy

At least that's how I pronounce it, Not sure about others.


My take is that it's clearly an intentional misspelling and they're almost always pronounced the same as the original word.


I do doj


doh-je


Doggie.


its simply doge, just like you pronounce "vote"


what? no.


Dohj
