    Definitely 3 for me. Not struggling to get there, either, it doesn't sound forced (I have to be careful to get 3 out of Catherine, and I can never get 3 out of Margaret). Though in my accent maybe it sounds a bit like Ever-it.

    Don't like it with 2. Don't like Cameron with 2 either, though I keep hearing Kam-rin.

    I second. I have heard some people introduce themselves with an almost inaudible pause between the Ehv and rett though. Even then, it's not really a sound.

    I say it with three: EHV-er-it is the best I can explain it.

    Everett is my sons middle name I voted two because I think how we pronounce it it sounds a bit more like two.

    I know a man with the name Everett and he pronounces it like ev-ret, so that's how I've always pronounced it.
