    Pronunciation of Samuel

    We are considering Samuel for our next son, but I have heard different pronunciations for it. We pronounce it two syllables, second syllable sounds like "-well." How do YOU pronounce it?

    Note that we will be calling him Sam most of the time, so it isn't a HUGE deal.

    Sam-yull is how I pronounce it, but either is acceptable I think. GL!
