How Do YOU Pronounce “Moleskine”?

Moleskine NotebookI’ve been a fan and avid user of Moleskine notebooks for many years. I’m going to need a new one soon and I haven’t been able to find them in the office supply and general department stores I’ve looked in. Today I decided to add one to my Amazon Wishlist and as I was doing so I wondered, not for the first time, “What is the correct pronunciation of the name?”

I’ve always heard and pronounced it myself as “Mole” (as in “bowl”) “Skin” (as in “spin”) but as you can see from the spelling of the name it has several other possibilities.

It turns out that question has been asked many times over and the maker of the notebooks has the answer here.

About The Word Of Jeff

I'm a freelance writer and blogger who has written for, among others, Tribune Media Services, Suite101 and Athena Guides. As an intrepid traveler I have chronicled some of my travels at The Verbal Vagabond, my travel blog. And, being an avid amateur photographer, I also have a photography blog spotlighting photos I have taken of areas around my hometown at Postcards From Maggie Valley. Speaking of Maggie Valley, that is where my wife, our Golden Retriever/Border Collie mix, Bella, our Orange Tabby, Tigger and I live in a log cabin on a mountain in Western North Carolina, just at the edge of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. I enjoy hiking, camping, art, travel, photography (as mentioned above), and an occasional glass of good wine while reading or writing in front of the fireplace.
