I say it Ay-Vuh, I don't like it Ah-Vah.. But I guess you could go with either.

Ay-vah for me too. I never heard it the other way, it sounds weird to me that way.

I pronounce it Ay-vuh. I've never heard it pronounced the other way (Ah-vah) -- I don't think it sounds nearly as pretty said like this.

I much prefer aye-vuh. AWe-vah sounds snooty, just like the girls on My Super Sweat Sixteen
