Another interesting one - Wifi. In the US it's always pronounced "WhyFhy" - but in other parts of the world I've heard 'WeFe'
I remember as a teen visting the Netherlands, being fascinated that they called a VW a "VeeWee." Which, given the "wee size" of the original Bug, seemed weirdly appropriate.
