That's a provocative question, Janie. ;-)

Here's another weird one: Leicester. I believe the English pronounce it "lester". There's no explaining such things, you just have to learn them as you go along. Then there's Aloysius, and I think they pronounce that one "Al-o-ish-us".

I always thought it was "Rap-pair" too...until Rapaire himself advised me otherwise. Amo's problem is that he won't accept it even when he is told what it is by the man whose name it IS. Shocking behaviour. That's why I think he (Amos) should be tossed into a vat full of Republican wombats and Shatnerized until he experiences a change of heart. ;-)
