    How is Bouguereau pronounced?

    In the name of everything that is "HOLY CRAP!" how the heck do you say his name?

    To the best of my knowledge, it's 'Boo-gro'. That's what Google yielded for me a while ago, anyway.

    it was tremendously funny to me when I was 10 to say booger-oh, which I believe is an acceptable pronunciation (though an "ooo" sound may be more appropriate, as in "boooger" as said above)

    My tiny heart is bleeding right now !
    Rebecca is close, even if the "gue" is the most difficult part, due to the way French people pronounciate the "E". Said quickly, his name sound close to "'Boo-gro" as said by Midnight. Maybe the most natural way for be understood by French people ?
