Lee-uh-pold?
Loo-pold?

I'm sure this is a dupe but try putting Leupold in the search in the 20 pages of archive results.

Whenever their bean counters call here they always pronounce it "Lee-uh-pold & Stephens" (or stevens..can't remember).

THat being said...I've always pronounced it "Loo-pold.....)

heh....so in closing, my answer is: fucked if I know.....I'll defer to the other folks.

Of course.

Leupold pronounces it LOO-pold, and so we should.

Like Mongo wrote: Loop-old.

Call the company some time and listen to how they answer the phone.

Loo-pold. My company sells some of their products and this is how we all pronounce it.

Now, how many people know how to pronounce Swarovski correctly? I can't tell you how many people I hear butchering that name

Here is a better way to sound it out......... LOU POLD

Heckler and "COCK", correct?

I know correct is probably lee a pold but I like loo i pold

Screw it we buy the products that's all they probably care about.

Heckler and Kock is an interesting example: is it correct to pronounce the German Heckler and Coke without supplanting the and with "unt"?

That's what I do-- although it is combining German and English which may not be right either.

If Leupold was spelled Leopold then it would be pronounced like this. I thin most tools just mispronounce the same way they would mispell it.

Here's one... Hesse... now Vulcan.

Or how about Olympic


*I don't really believe that... just thought it was funny.

VLTOR.

Question: What does VLTOR mean?
Answer: VLTOR is the ancient Roman spelling for the Latin word ULTOR, meaning "Avenger". This word was commonly used to describe the Roman God of War "Mars".

I thought it was Voltor... wasn't that the villain in Battle of the Planets (G-Force/Gatchaman).

I've heard people pronounce it Loi pold, but since nobody here pronounces Volkswagon as "Wolks Vagon", we'll do it the American way
I do pronounces Waffen SS as "Vaffen SS", and Luftwaffe as "Looftvaffa", but that's just me.

From what I understand the correct way to say SAKO is "sock-o" not "say-ko" as most of us Americans pronounce it.

I hear it pronounced seiko all the time. Hell, I asked a kid in Cabelas to see a Sako and he did not know what I meant. He insisted it was Seiko.

Beyond that conversation, the new Buda store rocks...
