as the title states, how do you pronounce it?

its such an obscure spelling, almost as strange as my girlfriends name SIOBHANN which is pronounced "she-vaun"

Some pronounce it 'Ing-vay', some say 'Ing-vee'. I usually use the latter, the former sounds really pretentious, and he's too much of a pretentious wanker as it is. :p:

I've heard someone pronounce it as Yah Way before...what a complete ****-tard. Anywho, the proper pronunciation that I've found is Ing-Vay

I know it's "Ing-vay", but sometimes I find myself saying "Ying-wee" once in awhile.

"ying-wee" is actually the proper Swedish pronounciation of it, Ing-Vay is just the Americanized way that he himself chose to be called.

The Spanish pronunciation is WAY easier since all the letters sound the same in every sentence. I mean, an E in Ebay will sound the same as in Elephant.
