Video : Pete Buttigieg, soaring in popularity, but… how to pronounce his Maltese origin surname …
Maltese-American presidential aspirant Pete Buttigieg is stealing US airwaves with his bid for the Democratic nomination for president.
Buttigieg, 37, is the son of the late Prof. Joseph A. Buttigieg, a Maltese lecturer at the University of Notre Dame.
Buttigieg, a Navy veteran and Rhodes scholar, is considered to the dark horse of the Democratic race, but voters’ struggle with pronouncing his name is also propelling him to greater attention.
