I agree with you Glenda, we should pronounce names correctly. However,
as I stood in line for the Van Gogh show last weekend in LA, my sister
and I tried to pronounce his name in the gutteral dutch way, and got a
lot of dirty looks.
I encourage my students to use the correct pronumciation whenever
possible, including place names.

It's not a matter of where you stand but in what direction you're headed.
