Pronunciation of the name

If you live near Soda Hall, Weikeng is pronounced Brewed Awakening, a café nearby.

Formally, Weikeng's IPA is /ˈweɪ kən/, WAY-K-EARN; Wei is pronounced wake. Keng is pronounced woken. You can find the sound here.

Nevertheless, it is hard. I am okay with both “weekend” and “we can”.
