How do you pronounce it?

Newbie question here ... how do you pronounce Piwigo? I knew how to pronounce "Gallery" ;-)

Pee-Wee-Go?
Pi-Wi-Go?

Some combination of those?

Thanks!

No, not that bad. ;-)

Is the accent on the middle syllable? So pee-WEE-go, or PEE-wee go?

(a moot point, I know, but I'd like to think at least internally I'm sounding it out correctly in my head)

I have never heard it pronounced by anyone in authority!
My interpretation is that an English-speaker (as opposed to a Frenchman;) would say

Pi-Wi-Go


(with short 'i' and emphasis on the first syllable)...

that's how it sounds in french too, like "kit". In fact I thought windracer wrote "Pi Wi" to be like "life"/"pie"

Re: How do you pronounce it?

Six years later I chime in...

From the moment I saw the name I automatically pronounced it Pih-WEE-go, but is there an official pronunciation?

Piwi is peewee, diminutive, something small. Going small.

Re: How do you pronounce it?

I know this is super-old, and nobody cares anymore, but I did find this video on YouTube that looks to be authoritative o the pronunciation.  It's too bad the audio isn't better.
