    I would say it varies based on where the speaker is from.  Here down south you’d probably get a whole different pronunciation, as you would if you were in NJ or Seattle. 

    PS – Love that name!

    I use the two syllable shortened version but either is appropriate.

    I *think* it should be 3 syllables (like, that is knowledge in my head,) but I think I would end up pronouncing it 2.

    It is my male cousin’s middle name and it always kind of gets glossed over/mushed, but if I’m thinking it through, I do 3 syllables.
