Xrlq says that Handel butchered the pronunciation, but I don’t care — as long as he spelled it right.
If anyone is visiting as a result of this mention, please drop a comment and let me know. I have this theory that a blog mention on the radio rarely leads to much traffic, but I’d love to know if this is wrong.
UPDATE: Xrlq says Handel didn’t spell it. This illustrates the advantage of having a name like Xrlq, which must be spelled every time it is said.
