Could you teach me the correct pronunciation of the name "Togeby"? If possible, please add the phonetic transcription in IPA.

    It should be the combination of these two, with main stress on the first syllable and secondary stress on the last:

    toge — Den Danske Ordbog
    by — Den Danske Ordbog


    The ?-like sign stands for the stød (creeky voice).
    I believe the sequence [wə] will often be assimilated to [ u ], at least in rapid speech: [ˈtɔːuˌbyˀ]

    The initial [t] is rather affricated, almost [ts].

    @ Winemous. Thank you. I had already seen the Forvo website, but as there was a discrepancy between the pronunciation and what was written, and as I wasn't sure I was hearing it right, I preferred to ask for the IPA.

    @ Svenke. Thank you so much for your detailed answer. That's exactly what I was looking for.
