It could be me, but I pronounce this name "AR-a-Gorn", not "ER-a-Gorn" as the films showed.

I am a big Lord of the Rings buff, and the name is pronounced ER-uh-gorn in the films, not AR-uh-gorn.

Aragorn is sometimes pronounced Er-a-gorn in the Lord of the Rings movies, but I have noticed that Legolas and occasionally others sometimes call him Ar-a-gorn.

According to how Elvish are pronounced, it's Ah-rah-gorn. Not Eragorn. The latter is a result of anglicization of the name. But Aragorn is not English, nor American, it's Sindarin.

The correct pronunciation is er-a-gorn. The reason it sometimes sounds lilke Are-a-gorn when Legolas says in the movie is Orlando Bloom's accent.

The correct pronunciation is AR-a-gorn. In the Sindarin langauge, according to pronunciation keys in the appendices to The Silmarillion and LOTR, vowels are pronounced long. A would be Ah, as in "father," "Bach," etc.
