    Neither. I say it COL-in. Sounds very different to 'call' imo, but that'll be because of the difference in the way English and Americans pronounce the letter O.

    I don't know what you meant by the first option--did you mean like the word call or like in Calvin?--but I pronounce it like Coll in (rhymes slightly with collar).

    I generally say CALL-in, but if I met someone who pronounced it COH-lin (rhyming the first syllable with "go") I'd say it the way they did. I've met/heard of people saying it both ways so I think both are legitimate and you could use either.
