That's just a guess, I never knew the proper pronunciation.

Alternatively, I-oat.
The name is Italian, right? Which means it should be pronouced Ah-YOTT-eh, with the last syllable being barely audible...

Ronn pronounces his last name "Dun-ETTE", so I'm inclined to follow that lead.

Oh, and Carolina is pronounced "kair-oh-LYNE-uh." :)

I don't know if it's an Italian name. I want to say that it's just 2 syllables. But I'm just guessing.

Ayotte Drums are in Canada. Which makes me think that maybe it's a French name.

Ayotte Drums is a custom drum company based in Bedford, Quebec, Canada.
My guess and thought from long ago that it is a French name and not Italian.

Then you won't need to stress or pronounce the last "e"
I - ott.

I agree about 'oh-LYNE-uh', we say that in England too. I'd say the 'kair' is an American thing though, like a dialect rather than the universal way of pronouncing Carolina. Over here it's 'kaah', like saying cat without the t. There's a British and American voice example here

We pronounce it the same way on the West Coast as they do on the East Coast.
Kair or Kare-o-line-ahhh

I pronounce Carolina....the Car in Carolina rhymes with the first syllable in the man's name Gary. Alternatively, it rhymes with the first syllable in the way they pronounce "Tara" in "Gone With The Wind".

But if I hop in my car, car rhymes with "are". Strange friggin language, not consistent at all.

Over here, Tara first syllable is not pronounced like the first syllable of Gary, it's pronounced like car or are, lol.

We had a Golden Retriever dog named Tara. We called her Tar-ah, as in car, but everybody else called her Tear-ah, as in care.

On the issues surrounding trans-Atlantic pronunciation, this seems relevant...

Premier is pronounced the English way:
PREH-me-e(h)r
The first 'e' like the first syllable of 'remnant'
Not Pree-meer. (Or PREH-me-ay for the French)

And Ludwig just like it looks (thud, dud, bud).
Not Loooood. In that case you might as well go all in for LOOOOD-vig.

And slightly OT: mischievous is pronounced: MISS-chuh-vus.
NOT Miss-CHEE-vee-us.

Just had to throw that in there.

BTW, just to set the record straight. It's ABBA like in lava, not ABBA like in crab.
