I've come across several pronunciations that I wasn't expecting.
The two I was farthest from are

Koralia - Kor al ya
Tunze - Tune zee

this thread is cracking me up. I've argued with my hubby for years about Betta. He nagged me constantly about it being Bay-ta. I just gave up because really, I'm horrible with words anyway and figured he was right... but oh no! I'm so gonna stick it to him. He's a gamer so I'm sure it's just in his "blood"

Just because one person said it doesn't make it correct... IMO both ways are correct.

Poh-tah-toe vs Poe-tay-toe. You could get really country with it and just type "'Dem taters."

I struggled with Cichlid for the longest time. I went to the petstore, turned to my friend, and started ranting out pronunciations until it sounded right. "Chichlid? Chiclid? No, that's gum, right? Sickclid? Sichlid? No, that sounds like a disease." I think the associate was making fun of me.
