How to make Siri pronounce names correctly?

This fits squarely in the “first world problems” category, but it annoys me when Siri pronounces my friends’ names incorrectly. This happens a lot with friends that have more unique spellings of their names. Is there a way to teach Siri how to say names correctly?

Thanks for asking this question, I'd forgotten how to do it! Heh. One of my friends has an odd last name and this just worked great to fix how Siri pronounces his name.

There is, and it is super easy. Just say, “Learn how to pronounce Abe’s name.” Obviously, don’t actually say Abe unless that is a name being mispronounced.
