Toh-may-toh, toh-mah-toh

How do you pronounce "Moleskine?"

The Moleskine US website says it's pronounced "mol-a-skeen'-a" but I don't think I've ever heard it pronounced exactly that way. I've heard "mol-skin," and "mol-skeen," among other pronunciations.

For some reason I pronounce it "moh-leh-skeen'-ay," just because I like to. When I refer to "my Mole" I pronounce it my "moh'-lay."

What do you call it?


  1. I just say "mole-skin." I've heard it pronounced "mole-eh-skin" by several people.

  2. I say Mole-ah-skeen-A (long A there on the end). No one else here says it like that. But, I"m standing my ground.

  3. Mole-Uh-Skin-Uh. Just like the website says.
    I wouldn't like it if people kept pronouncing my name wrongly...

  4. Hahhah, I asked a clerk a few weeks ago how to pronounce it, and he gave me a weird sideways look and said "Mole-skin?"
    That's what I thought. But who knows..
