Hi Everyone;

With an ongoing discussion about the proper pronunciation of Barbuda in our family, I would like to know what the answer is. I have heard both ways Bar-bew-da and Bar-boo-da and just want to figure it out! Thanks for your help.

Merry Christmas!
In our family, it's Bar-boo-da based on how it was pronounded in An-tee-ga! LOL!

I have heard Barbudans pronounce it both ways, but most of my Barbudan friends do the "Barbeuda" thing.
