Public opinion out now on how to pronounce Raynaud's
Raynaud's is the condition named by French physician Maurice Raynaud (1834–1881), but have you ever thought about how you say Raynaud's?
There were such a wide range of answers that it seems everyone says it differently. One example was where one of our community asked some medical professionals about how they pronounce 'Raynaud's' and why. Their answer was 'Ray-nodes', because they had heard others saying it that way.
From both our Twitter and Facebook pages, Ray-nodes seemed to be the most popular, followed by Ray-nards, then Ray-nose. Here is some more detail and what you said -
