Amazing Names #6

Welcome to Amazing Names Thursday everyone! Here is today's entry:


What's so amazing about that, you ask? It's a pretty common last name, and was the first name of the whiny daughter on The Sopranos. In this instance at the library, it was a last name. A patron forgot their library card and so I offered to look it up. Asking them to spell their last name out, M-E-A-D-O-W-S, I repeated,
Librarian: "Meadows."
Patron: No, it's pronounced "Mee-ah-dos."

What the hell. Seriously? Who are you kidding and did your Grandfather really say it that way? Has anyone, EVER gotten it correct?
