Raven-Symone reveals to fans the correct way to say her last name: ‘It’s pronounced See-mon-ye’


Raven-Symone informed her fans on TikTok earlier Thursday that her last name has been mispronounced for years, and revealed the correct way to say the name. 

The former Disney channel star, 37, had initially introduced herself on the popular network as Raven ‘Sim-moan’ but expressed that the correct pronunciation was actually, ‘See-mon-ye.’ 

The actress, who recently opened up about her 40-pound weight loss journey, has already garnered nearly 1 million views on the clip. 

Correction: Raven-Symone, 37, revealed to her fans earlier Thursday on TikTok that her last name has been mispronounced for years and explained the correct way to say the name 

The That’s So Raven star filmed the six-second TikTok video from inside a parked vehicle, and could be seen sitting in the driver’s seat. 

She sported a plain, brown shirt and layered the top with a patterned, pastel orange and green cardigan. Raven added a few gold necklaces, along with circular sunglasses that were adorned with a gold chain for a fashionable edge.  

With her phone propped up on the dashboard directly in front of her, the star quickly recorded herself with the trending sound, ‘Shut Up, It Is Not,’ playing in the background, rather than having herself talk.

The clip began with the caption, ‘Yo, that’s Raven-Symone,’ popping up in white letters, showing off how her name has been pronounced in the past. 

Raven then transitioned to a different caption to reveal to her followers the way her last name should be said, typing, ‘It’s pronounced See-mon-ye.’ 

During the course of the reel, a voiceover stated, ‘Shut up, it is not,’ with another voice replying with, ‘Yes, it is,’ which Raven mimicked. 

In the caption along with the TikTok video, The Cheetah Girls actress penned, ‘Those who know…KNOW… fit was cray that day.’ 

Joining her fans: Raven soon joined the comment section with her other fans, and clarified once again the correct pronunciation of her last name, and wrote, 'See-mon-ye like yay'

The actress recently opened up to Entertainment Tonight at the You People premiere earlier this month about the 20th anniversary of her hit Disney show, That’s So Raven. 

She expressed that, ‘It’s amazing how long this franchise, [and] brand, has lasted in the hearts of the community. And I’m so happy for it. And the fact that, That’s So Raven, is also a sentence is crazy to me.’ 

The star also talked about another hit project she had worked on in the past called, The Cheetah Girls, alongside Adrienne Bailon-Houghton, during an interview with E! News two months earlier in November. 

Raven discussed if she would be interested in a ‘Cheetah Girls reunion,’ and admitted, ‘You know what, if it’s with her…You know,’ she slightly hinted at a possibility.

Last year on The View, Raven also opened up about her weight loss journey, and credited her wife, Miranda Maday, whom she tied the knot with in 2020, for helping achieve her goals. 

‘With her help and guidance and love and fantastic cooking skills which everyone here knows, she helped me kick sugar,’ she stated. 

‘I say kick sugar because it is an addictive drug, and I was addicted to it in wheat form, in regular form. And it’s out of my system,’ the star added. Raven explained that one of the main reasons she wanted to focus on her health and ‘change’ was due to her wife. 

‘I want to be here for her as long as I can,’ the actress explained. ‘I found out some numbers at the doctor that were not pleasant for someone in my age bracket, or any age bracket, to be honest with you.’
