How to pronounce Avaya

I read it AH VAY AH and like it if that's how it's said, but I am thinking it could be AH VAI AH. How do you read it?

    I'd pronounce it ah-VAY-ah, rhyming with Nevaeh (eek), but I'd be guessing.

  • I say it with "vi" (as in violet) in the middle...but that's b/c this is the name of the phone system we use at work, and that's how it is pronounced. I haven't heard of it as a name for a person before, so I automatically think of the phones.

  • I'm not sure if you're considering it or if you just saw it somewhere, but it's the name of a telecom company for businesses - VOIP phones, voicemail systems, etc.  Anyone in IT would know it immediately.  That company pronounces it Uh-vai-uh.
  • I think it's pronounced "Terrible."

    Btw, that's an IT company. They pronounce it A-vy-uh.
