Most of us says it like Dr. Zeus, but that’s totally incorrect!
Theodor Geisel is Dr. Seuss’ real name and he took his pen name from his middle name, Seuss, which is his mom’s maiden name. (He added doctor because his dad always wanted him to practice medicine.)
So how do you pronounce it?
According to the authors of the book “You’re Saying It Wrong,” Geisel pronounced it “Soice” (rhyming with voice).
One of his friends, Alexander Liang, even created this little poem about how people said Seuss.
