So, how do you pronounce David Bowie?

Do you pronounce it..

A:
David

ie.

Or

B:
David

ie.


I always pronounced it B, then I saw a video where he introduces himself, pronouncing it A.

So, how does the Pit pronounce it?

Poll incoming.

As an indo-italo-englishman I'm going to have to disagree with this.

So there's a poll even though there's an objective right answer?

EDIT: I missed the italicized "you", but still

He's the hero The Pit deserves but not the one it needs right now. So, we'll hunt him, because he can take it. Because he's not our hero. He's a silent guardian. A watchful protector. GbAdimDb5m7.

As an American, I disagree. Everyone here pronounces it like answer A.

I've always said B. I have a friend called David Bowie, and it's pronounced the second way.
#15
I've never heard it pronounce as B before in my life.

I'm American and I clearly know it's A. I actually don't think I've ever heard it pronounced the second way.

His name is David Bowie?

I wonder what his parents were listening to while they were high when they named him.

I've always thought him being English would sort of grant him some sort of special pronunciation like how gloucester is pronounced gloss-ster. B
#28
I always thought it was B, and I know a few people with that surname that pronounce it the 2nd way.
But then I don't really like him or his music (he was awesome in Labyrinth though), so I don't have to pronounce it.

This. Also, TS, you said that you saw a video where he introduced himself as A.

Does that not answer your question fairly conclusively?
