    How do you pronounce Lunnonhaus?

    We're moving to an apartment that's off the road, "Lunnonhaus Dr." Anyone have any clue how to correctly pronounce Lunnonhaus? I figure it might be good to at least be able to pronounce the name of the street you live on.

    I'd be willing to bet most of the other folks there pronounce it "Loo-non-house", which is close.

    Likely, a more accurate pronunciation might be "Loo-known-haas".

    During my entire childhood we lived on a road called Xeon which we* incorrectly pronounced "EX-ee-on" for 15 years. It wasn't until I was an old young adult that I realized it was supposed to be pronounced "ZEE-on."

    *this included my entire family, any visitors we had, and every single person who lived on the street with us. We all pronounced it "EX-ee-on." My friend's family lives on the same street about 40 miles away, and they pronounce it "EX-ee-on," too, still to this day.
