Why does everyone mis-prounounce Neil Gaiman's name?

And I know I'm pronouncing it correctly, because I've heard him say it, and I think he would know.

I was listening to the NaNoWriMo podcast, and then I flinched.

Less than 2k. Less than 2k. Less than 2k.

No, that's the correct way. I keep hearing people pronounce it Guy-man, which is weird and always for a second I'm like "What? Who?"

Because it's spelled, to most people, to look like "Guy-man", pronouncing the "ai" as a truncated "eye" and not a long "a". And also because most people don't want to pronounce it "Gay Man" and be wrong and embarrass themselves.

I'd always pronounced it "Guy Man" until I heard you say it this summer, actually.
