    I think the only one that might be weird is Mu. It's Mooooo like a cow. I don't know why I got all creative with the spelling, I've instructed Matt and my mother to smack me if I ever do that again. :p

    Seamus is pronounced Shay-mus.

    Sally is pretty self-explanatory. :p

    I feel dumb!

    I've always said it "Aw-gie". Or maybe I'm just reading the pronunciation wrong, and AM saying it right lol.

    Wilson & Piper's are pretty self explanatory ;)

    But lots of people mess Sako up. It's Say-co, pronounced like the watch brand (Seiko), but he's NOT named after the watch brand. He's named after the rifle company (http://www.sako.fi/).. I'm sure over in Finland, it'd be pronounced "Sack-o", or something like that, but I didn't like it pronounced that way, so "Say-co" it is!

    Hah, yeah, if she wasn't three and already registered/has her name everywhere I would totally change it. Lesson learned. Lol. (Oh and I don't call her with the long mooooo sound....unless she's eating grass. Which happens quite often.)

    How were you pronouncing it?

    Buster = Bust -ER (or bad dog..haha. Think of Buster Rhymes. ;))
    Rudy = Roo - D (as in Rudolph the red nosed reindeer. Yes my mom did name him after him because he looks like a deer.)
    Dixie = Dix - E (think of the cheap paper plates and cups or the Dixie Chic's)

    For my cats:

    Miagi = Me - og - E (think of Mr. Miagi in the karate kid but he is not named after him, totally different reason!)
    Tiger - Ti - gR (as in the wild cat..)
    Angel = An - jeL (as in Angel you know but she's no Angel in personality..)

    I guess that's right, I don't know haha. Fun thread, though. :)

    I think "Meg" and "Gusto" are pretty simple to pronounce.

    "Meg" rhymes with peg

    "Gusto" is a little harder, because it has a silent "getoverhererightnowwhatareyouthinking" at the end.
