I have been pronouncing her name wrong this entire time! Glad she cleared things up for me…
Mispronouncing Tomi Lahren‘s name is sort of a joke online now. Expand any of her tweets and you’ll see people addressing her as anything from Tammy to Tapioca. The South Dakota native appeared on Fox News this weekend to chat with Jesse Watters and the two made quick work of creating a pronunciation guide.
Here’s what people on Twitter are saying:
Tomi Lahren has a big audience for somebody with a name literally nobody has ever pronounced correctly.

Today I learned that Tomi Lahren’s first name is pronounced “Tommy” and not “Toe-me” and that makes me dislike her even more

Fav if you pronounce Tomi Lahren’s name like “toe-mee” instead of “tommy”

I’m so glad Tomi Lahren’s last name isn’t pronounced “Lauren,” because otherwise I’d have to change my name.

Hi @TomiLahren can you tell me how to pronounce your name? I don’t watch your show because it’s basically The 700 Club so I don’t know.

So, what is the correct pronunciation of her name?
“It’s Tomi like the boys’ name,” she explained. “Lahren like laryngitis.”
Watters laughed, “That’s the word you’re going to use for people to recall your name?”
She assured him she is called much worse online.
