    My guess is 'a-v-doh' (the 'doh' being pronounced like old man 'Simpson' in the cartoon! - or the stuff you bake bread with!).

    Oh that's stupid, 'cos you can write it doe (as you have!)

    So I go for A-V-Doe

    I've always pronounced it "eee-wee-doe"; hope that isn't bastardizing it too much. Then again, I've had few occassions when I've even needed to say it aloud. :D

    I say sometimes .. on another location I would say a lot more .. but must of the time I pronounce it "e-wei-die-a" ... actualy it's getting better when you hear someone saying it to you.. :D

    so I have my own reasons for pronouncing like that...lmfao most of the times...

    @ Rainwalker: I don't know what to say...:p

    LOL...I've wondered this myself.

    Is is " uh wee doe "?
    Is it " A WHY DOE "?
    Is it " EE WHY DOE "?
    Is it " uh WHY DOE" ?
    Is it "uh WHY DO "?
    Is it "EE WHY DO "?

    and on and on.....

    Fish, you should know! You said "I think "eewidoe" comes pretty close"...but is that a long "I" or a short "i" (LOL)?

    I also think Topper and Rich have a good point about the German "w" sounding like a "v".....

    In Belgium we say "e-wie-do".

    FYI. American cats say "mew" or "miaow", while Belgian cats say "miauw", which proves that cats also speak different languages.
    I hope this helps. :)

    Wow...I didn't expect this to turn into such a debate :D

    I think I will just keep calling it uh-wee-doe.

    This might help..........maybe :)

    Dear xxxxx

    thank you for your request and sorry for the late reply.

    As we are a German company we are also not 100% sure how to pronounce it in
    English. However, we think "eewidoe" should come pretty close.

    With best regards,

    Your ewido networks Support-Team
