    I pronounce my own username as Formal-hawt, though I accept the German pronunciation, even if Fomal-howt just sounds strange to my non-Germanic ears.

    I pronounce it like Pheesh, Psy and Formy apparently do. But they will probably claim I say it as Furmulhut because of my New Zealand accent.
