In my country, Iceland, we try to pronounce most names,peoples or other
countries and cities, as they are pronounced by the people of that country.
Some names however like some cities do actually have icelandic names, like
you also have english names for cities like: Rome or Venice or Florence. I
personally believe in using the pronounciation of the native tounge.
