‘Smyth’, Meaning ‘Smith’ Has a Different Pronunciation

Tully’s last name is ‘Smyth’, which is an old English name that actually originated in Scotland and Ireland.

The moniker can be spelled a number of ways, including ‘Smith’ — however, ‘Smyth’ is not pronounced the same way.

Given that there is no “i” in her name, there is no “ie” sound, which means it is pronounced SM-EYE-TH.

Why Is Big Brother Australia 2022’s Tully Smyth So Famous?

Tully first appeared in the Big Brother house in season 10 and garnered attention for her scandalous fling with fellow contestant Anthony Drew (most known as Drew).

Tully hooked up with her housemate despite having a girlfriend, Tahlia Farrant, of two years at home.

She was booted in week eight after all of Australia condemned her for having a relationship on the outside.
