Yep, sounds good to me; but I’ve also heard it pronounced La-oo—Nah-ee-dah so sorry if doubt sinks in again 😜

I have always heard it pronounced Low-Nyda, and that is how it is pronounced in this Logos training video.

I don't Nida person to pronounce it for me. Louw and behold, I can pronounce it all by myself.

Cool

My thanks to the various MVPs. Without them Logos would have died early. They were the only real help available.

I am inclined to stick to the old ways and pronounce the names "Low (and behold) NIGH-da."

Another itch that needs scratched is Nestle and Aland.

Nestle:  NEST-lay / NEST-lee / NESS'l

Aland:  Ah-LAHND / Uh-LAND 

But that might be for another thread.

Well folks, these have all been most entertaining answers to my question, THANKS!

I think I'm going to go with Low-Naida (like Oneida, the cutlery people!)

As for Nestle-Aland, I've always said NEST-lee-Alan-with-a-D 

Cool

The wife is always correct. At least, that's what mine says.

Hmmm.  I wonder if my wife knows your wife.  Wink

Truth be told, my wife has an uncanny sense of direction, so whenever we're driving on back-roads and forestry roads, I always trust her judgement regarding the direction we're heading and which fork in a road to take.  Seems she's always right.  Hard on my ego, but I've never been lost when she was with me--something I have managed to accomplish a couple of times when I've been on my own. Surprise

If it was good enough for the Apostle Paul, it's good enough for me.
