    Oh please, I pronounce it few-go...I took French in high school not Spanish. To me the fue part should be pronounced like cue, due, etc. ;)

    I remember early on when you were considered the mystery man of the forum and a few people thought they'd busted you on your identity when they googled your nick and David Hogan's name came up.

    I think fwaygo is correct if the y is then removed. The resulting sound is somewhere between the a and the y.

    Yeah, but it AIN'T French it's Spanish. So unless you want to appear like an idiot pronouncing a Spanish word wrong, be my guest.

    I think Spanish is much easier to pronounce to a Norwegian than to an English speaker, the sounds are far more similar. The man in the video pronounces it exactly like I would, or at least like I would try to.

    When I first joined the forum, our house was out in the country where there weren't any lights at night. I loved looking us at the bright stars in the clear night sky. So, I chose Nightsky for my user name.

    Romans 8:28 is one of my favorite verses. You chose a great name.
