I still hear the first "zs" in the name as voiceless [ˈʃuʒa]. Is it only me?

No, it isn't just you. I'm puzzled as well.

the audio is a little bit faulty here, the first zs should sound just like the sencond one

How did you get those ipa characters?

Here in Chile this name is a bad word. Well, it is not the same writing but it sounds similar.

Susan is the English equivalent of Szusza.

What would the English version of Zsuzsa be? If there evan is one.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/pizspozseng

Some nickname of Susan, since Zsuzsa is the nickname for Zsuzsanna, Hungarian for Susan

I've heard 'Zsazsa' as a given name in the US sometimes. Not super common though.

The first 'zh' sounds like /ʃ/ (rather than /ʒ/, which, according to the tips and notes, is how 'zs' is pronounced). Should the name be pronounced /ʃuʒa/ or /ʒuʒa/?

It should be /ʒuʒɒ/

Magyarul, I can almost say "You have a nice voice." P.S. - Where are the supposed other thirteen (13) comments?

Suzy is Zsuzsa. I am right. I know because that is my name.
