    And I don't know if it's right for the company, but I knew a guy in the Navy named Gallien. The way HE said it rhymed with alien.

    Someone asked about Aguilar a few weeks ago and the consensus (and my original answer :D) was: a-gwi-LAR (note emphasis on final syllable)<BR>For the others I would suggest: fo-de-ra (all syllables emphasised equally) and gal-i-yen KROO-ger<BR><BR>HTH

    Oooo oooo oooo....

    ...since I get to talk to all these folks, I know the answer:

    Fodera: Fo-dare-uh
    Aguilar: Ag-wih-lar
    Gallien-Kruger: Gal-ee-in Krew-ger

    We actually had a thread in Misc on the Aguilar pronounciation.

    Pedulla, anyone?

    I've always heard it as "peh-DOO-lah", but some say it's actually "peh-deh-lah", no strongly accented syllable.
