I read Joseph
Wambaugh's "The Glitter Dome" and noted the name Aloysius
, but never bothered too much with how to pronounce it... anyway, when I saw "O Brother, Where Art
Thou," and I heard Everett
Clooney) say to the blind DJ, "Only four of us can write - Merton
and AL-OO-WISH-US will have to make an X," I started playing with it in my head, saying, "Can
that be... is it... is THAT how Aloysius
is pronounced?" I couldn't think of any OTHER name that might be pronounced that way, and so I finally looked it up. Yeppers - Al-oo-wish-us it is!
