    I had a teacher in high school named Mr. Palazzo and he had us pronounce it Mr. Palatzo. Based on that I would pronounce your name Pot-zo.

    I’m betting it’s probably pronounced Pot-zoe (very italian?) but my first instinct is Poe-Zoe…like pogo almost. Sorry, i know it’s wrong! hey my maiden name rhymed with Squirrel and Pearl….and everybody Effed it up. It sucks!!!

    @cvbee: My second guess would have been “Paw-zoe.” Poe-Zoe never even crossed my mind until I saw it in your poll. 

    I think those in the US Midwest/South will pronounce it “Poe-Zoe”, those on the coasts will go for “Paw-zoe”, and those who know Italian pronunciation will stick with “Pot-Zo.”

    I say go with however hubby’s family pronounces it!

    i think u shud just pronounce it the way he does n he parents do too.. even if u have to teach ppl ur new name eventually they will get used to it. I have a friend who didnt like that his wife pronounced the name totally wrongly n actually told ppl the wrong pronounciation just because she thought it would be less hassle

    I read Poe-Zoe being from WI. But, then I thought about pizza and you don’t pronounce it Piz-Za. It’s Peetzah 🙂
