Good question... Once you get past the Anna Sandesjo entries on Google it seems to be a Swedish surname. So I'm going to take the pronunciation of fjord and guess it sounds more like Sandesyo..,..yo as in yo-yo.

That is exactly how I pronounced the name.

Re: Vanguard: Just how does one pronounce "Sandesjo"?

I thought it was Spanish, so I've already read it as "San-Day-Hoe."

Hopefully, we'll get it soon enough from the masticatory orifice of the original equine. I didn't realize I was not the only one with little more than a guess.

This is close. The stress should be on the first syllable, though:

SAN-dezsh-oh

It is a Swedish surname, and that was how I heard the woman pronounce her name.

Good to know. I figured I was the only one who was uncertain about how to pronounce it.

It's spelled Dezsh, but it's pronounced Throat Warbler Mangrove.

Re: Vanguard: Just how does one pronounce "Sandesjo"?

If it's a Swedish name, the "o" has two dots over it, and is pronounced something like "er". An approximate English pronunciation would be: "Sawnd-eh-sure".

"Sjö" (with the dots over the "o") is the Swedish word for "lake".

Yes, Anna Sandesjö definitely sounds Swedish, now when you mention it. But as a Swede myself, I never made the connection and always assumed the surname was Spanish, the way it was written.

Only if you mean British English. Americans would pronounce the R sound at the end there. I often see foreign pronunciations spelled with British English in mind, thus misleading American readers into inserting R sounds that shouldn't be there. Like "Gurr-tuh" for Goethe, "Girdle" for mathematician Kurt Gödel, or "Sharr-day" for the singer Sade.

The problem, though, is that there's no sound in American English that really corresponds to that Germanic "oe"/British non-rhotic "er" sound. So you pretty much have to go with the "R" spelling but specify that it must be spoken with an English accent. (Though it's easier with Sade -- just say it's "Shah-day," and Americans will get it.)

Re: Vanguard: Just how does one pronounce "Sandesjo"?

Well I'm American, though I've lived in Sweden for more than 35 years. To my ears, the ö always sounds like there's an r in there, although "sjö" certainly isn't the same as "sure" . It's just the closest word we have.
