    Game character names used to do that. The acronyms I always said how they were spelt though. Except for Jpg (or Jpeg) or Mpg (Mpeg). And Gif. I do those cos they have vowels.

    Like, Edea from FF8, I pronounced Ed-ear. I found out is was meant to be E-da.

    Also, Yoshi. I prefer Yoh-She. Some go Yow-she.

    Strangely though, I got Sephiroth right though. Seh-fear-roth.

    Hmm, anymore...?

    ..er, I got one. Hegemonic. Hegg-e-monic or Hedge-e-monic? Also diegetic. Die-e-gee-tic or Die-e-jet-ic?

    then again, how do you pronounce Pras and Prasanna? I'm a n00b, what do you want from me?

    I think the most famous is Wiired's "wii red" lol. best pronunciation mistake ever.
    Simply pronounce it as:

    Pras = Press
    Prasanna = Press-en-na

    People who haven't read tolkien's index on proper elvish pronunciation piss me off. LMAO

    @Pras..didn't think I could like the name prasanna any more. I do now though.

    I pronounce it as Byu-a-kuya, but I am just making it easier for others. I got that name from Bleach. I loved it the moment I heard it and it stuck.

    mine:

    PNG.... used to say "p. n. g." while it should be "ping"

    GIF....used to use a soft "g" while it should be hard.

    I have never in my life working around people who working in A/V production, Design webpages, do photoshop 5 hours at a time, and just genreally sit and do AV shit with there $5,000 cameras hear anyone Say Ping Image. Never ever have i heard that. GIF yes(pronounced either way) but Ping? never heard of it. just say PNG.

    When i was about 6 i pronounced Ethernet with a soft E, it sounds retarded.

    What if, on a crowded street, you look up and see something appear that should not, given what we know, be there. You either shake your head and dismiss it, or you accept that there is much more to the world than we think. Perhaps it really is a doorway to another place. If you choose to go inside you may find many unexpected things."-Miyamoto
