LinkedIn Now Allows You to Record the Pronunciation of Your Name!

You can record your name pronunciation and display it on your LinkedIn profile for others to listen to. This will help LinkedIn members to correctly address you.

Important: If you’ve chosen for your last name to only appear to your connections, then while selecting name pronunciation visibility, you’ll be notified through a ‘Name display restriction’ pop-up. Learn more about changing how your name appears on your profile.


  • You currently can’t record or edit your name pronunciation on the LinkedIn desktop site. It can only be done on the LinkedIn iOS/Android mobile app.
  • This feature should be used only to record your preferred professional name pronunciation.

To delete your name pronunciation on your profile:

  1. Click the Me icon at the top of your LinkedIn homepage.
  2. Click View profile.
  3. Click the  Edit icon in your introduction card.
  4. Click the  Delete icon next to your Name pronunciation
  5. In the confirmation pop-up window, click Delete.

While recording:

  • Make sure that the total recording time is within 10 seconds.
  • Limit background noise.
  • Speak slowly and pronounce each syllable clearly.
  • Hold the phone four inches from your mouth.
