Default How do you pronounce your dog's name?

Sometimes you read a spelling and pronounce a name in your head differently than the owner actually intends it to be pronounced (ie. Mia and Nia the papillons). So how do you pronounce your dogs name?

Chloe - Kl - Oh - Ee

Violet - Vy - Let

Bodhi = Bo-dee.

I would like to think that Boo is pretty self explanatory! If you're still confused, think of ghosts or what you shout when the opposing team is about to score.

It's actually harder saying Jinjo to people it seems than looking at it! With the exception of one desk person at our vets that seems determined his name is "Jingo", when I tell people his name they automatically swamp him with "Ginger! Aren't you sweet!" *face-palm*
In any case, what I always end up telling people is "Gin-like gin and tonic, Jo-like GI Joe" with LOTS of emphasis on "Jo". Sad, I remember years ago in his agility classes someone use to always call him "Joe-sombody" because she couldn't remember the rest, lol.
But if that isn't enough, watch this video and you'll get about 50+ chances to learn how to say it properly: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LYQ9xnX6Fx0

Enda, I looked it up only after someone told me it's a real name, yeah I seriously just decided to shorten her registered name "Endless" and added an A at the end! Guess I'm not that creative, but it's fitting, it mean "Bird-like". Anyway, I say it "End-Ah".

Noodle...do I have to?

Auggie - Ogg-ee.

Pepper is just like the condiment.
