I'm pretty the official way is Bwah-fuh, but for countless ages I have pronounced it Buh-whofh-uh.

Those are all quite correct (well, the 'wuh' at the end of Regen's should be 'uh'... there's no way to put a W in there!)... it's just a matter of how much you rush through the different vowels at the beginning. The only important thing that nobody is mentioning is that it's BWAH-fuh - the emphasis is on the first sylabble. I don't know where you guys put it, but that is where it goes.

The emphasis is on whofh in my version. Buh-WHOFH-uh.

"Whofh" should be used in more pronunciations.

Like Regen, you have added syllables that don't exist. The last 3 letters are PHA, no U involved.

And Mr. Onion doesn't seem to recall how the letter H works.

Yerfdog Re: bouapha

It's another case of reading it a long time ago, and never switching back.

I say it like BOO-PAH. I don't even usually say the A. (Though rarely, I say BOO-A-PAH)

Looks like everyone pronounces Bouapha differently... mostly.

I still think my version sounds nicer.
