Pronounciation

Marzocchi - Mar Zotch Ee

Shimano - Shih Man Oh

Don't care if it's wrong, it sounds "right" to me.

Any others?

For crying out loud, just call these manufacturers up and see what they say when they answer the phone.
Then you will cease sounding like a n00b when you say their names.

"Hello, Mar-zoh-key?"

"Hello, Mar-zoh-key?"
But then you'll sound like a n00b again when you don't answer into the phone because you don't know what to say.

Actually, it's red tank top and I think those 'swords' are just PVC pipe - - "Stand back, or I'll pummel you with plastic!"
