    Well not always true......I hate to blow anyone’s mind here...but... my middle name is D’Arcy. And it’s pronounced “Dee-Arcy”. I’m not Italian and that’s the way it’s pronounced. If anyone pronounces it Da-Arcy or even worse “DArcy” it pisses me off and I want to swing a MS20 mic stand to their forehead. Just sayin :thumb:

    Just as "piezo" is pronounced "pee-eh'tzo," not "pie-zoh."

    Good point. Otherwise, Thomas Hardy's novel Tess of The D'Urbervilles has the family name pronounced Dee-Urberville. What surprised me when I called the NY office was their own telephonist adding an extra syllable. It's a bit like those people who think they work in 'Haitch R'. You'd think that one day one of the induction course, someone would open a dictionary at the letter A and show them the word 'aitch'. I mean, how hard can it be to get the name of your department right, when it's only two letters? :D

    (Actually, I hate the term Human Resources, but that's another story.)

    It is spelt Raymond Luxury-Yacht, but it's pronounced Throatwobbler Mangrove.

    I will not go so far as to tell how how you should pronounce your own name.:)

    My last name is Leonard. People in the US usually get it "right", but in Quebec we hear "Lay-O-narr", and in Mexico it's "Lee-O-nard". My wife thinks it sounds romantic...which I guess makes sense, because they're pronouncing it the way one would in the romance languages (apologies for conflating two different meanings of "romance"). And, this has nothing to do with the "D-apostrophe" matter....just working my way toward 5000 posts...

    HR... Late 70s, early 80s when they transitioned from "Personnel" to "Human Resources?"

    On D'Angelico.... as I mentioned above (I was trying to avoid giving McKnight a link)
