Good grief...LOL! Some of them I pronounce correctly, some not. We have a Britax seat, and I always said "Brit-ax" in my head, not "Bright-ax" until recently...I was looking something up about a different Britax seat and was watching videos and the lady was pronouncing it correctly. That's the first I'd heard it pronounced out loud LOL.

my biggest "huh"? was "pedipeds" being pronounces "pee-di-peds" waaaah? I thought for sure it was PED-EE-PEDS

and i definitely pronounced Robeezs as "Row-beezs" instead of Robbies. Never knew i was wrong!

Pedipeds makes sense now that I think about it, but always pronounced in PED-ee-peds in my head. Chicco - uh, no. It's still CHEEK-O to me... as are ROW-BEES.

I knew quinoa from watching Food Network.

I only knew Chicco because I saw a commercial once and at the end they said "pronounced key-co". I remember rewinding it just to make sure I heard then right

I say Britax, Chicco, Robeez and Pedipeds wrong. The rest I say correctly - except Stokke - I've never tried to say that.
