How to say my name

Peter Marquis-Kyle.
Peter    is just peter. You know how to say that.
Marquis    has two syllables: mark (like the apostle) + wiss (rhymes with bliss).
-    is a hyphen. It’s silent.
Kyle    rhymes with style.

Hear me say my name.

The name came from Scotland with my Great Grandfather Daniel Marquis Kyle and his household. He was born in Glasgow in 1860 and came to Brisbane in 1883. Before the 1820s the name was McVarquis, not Marquis.
