How do *you* pronounce Derby?

One problem with the name Derby for the Apache database project is that it has at least two common pronunciations. Working with folks from the UK, Norway, India and US, we actually hear many more pronunciations.

Jean Anderson, one of the Derby committers, finally put up a Wiki page with recordings of Derby pronunciations. Fun page. I'd put my pronunciation up, but it's pretty close to Jean's (although she definitely does sound like she's from Minnesota, eh?).

If you think your pronunciation is different, record it, and put it up! I'd like to see how many different pronunciations there are.
