Spanish term or phrase: Jamil Mahuad (pronunciación)
Jamil Mahuad was an Ecuadorian president of Lebanese origin, whose Arabic forename and surname are transliterated on the basis of English orthography, because of which originally Jamil is not [xamil] as in Spanish and Mahuad is not [mauad] as in Spanish (spelling in [] is IPA-based).
As far as I know 'j' in Alberto Fujimori's surname is not pronounced as in Spanish 'j', so I wonder whether Hispanic people pronounce Jamil Mahuad's name as /yamil majuad/ more or less like original pronunciation or /jamil mauad/ like Spanish spelling pronunciation (spelling in // is Spanish-based).
Or is there any standard pronunciation for his name?

agree  Claudia Alvis: De acuerdo con lo de 'Jamil', pero en Perú, si bien hay gente que pronuncia 'Fujimori' como tu dices, la gran mayoría lo pronuncia 'Fujimori' con J de 'jacinto'.

  -> Interesante que en Perú se ulicen las dos opciones para Fujimori. Yo entiendo que la J de Fujimori es como en FUJI films, ambas de origen japonés. Gracias por la información.
