I read about a case in New Zealand (I think) in which a judge refused to grant a mother permission to name her child "*****head", which she adamantly claimed was pronounced suh-TEED.

See, it's ALL in the pronounciation!

"No, no, no, it's pronounced 'As We Pay'" - SNL

OT, people sometimes pronounce my name "Apple In" instead of "A'plin", but I don't get uppity about it. However, I do try to pronounce or find out how to pronounce people's name properly. I view that as a sign of respect.
