He is one of the most significant children's authors of all time, but as you read the beloved tales to your children, you could have been pronouncing Roald Dahl's name wrong.

The Norwegian name isn't exactly easy to pronounce, but the legendary author deserves the respect of the correct pronunciation of his given name. 

If you've been pronouncing it as "Rolled Dahl" then you are wrong.  

Footage from an episode of 1960s sci-fi TV show, Way Out, features the praised author introduced at the very start, with his name pronounced as: "Roo-all Dahl."

Take a look at the video above to hear the correct pronunciation.
