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.
