:Pronounciation of 'Tofino'

Is it Toffinno or Toe-feen-oh or T'feeno or T'feena or Toe-feenah-or what?

And while we are here, is it Yew-clue-lay or Uck-Luck-Lette or hat?

And NAY-NAY-MOW?

Just wondering.

As the person who started this thead off, I'm surprised but delighted to see how much interest it has aroused.

Someone really ought to write a song about it: 'You say Tuh-Fenno and I say Toe-Feeno.....'

In my home county of Devon, England, there are two separate villages, miles apart, each called Woolfardisworthy. Visitors invariably find themselves in the wrong one and can't start to pronounce where they are (it's 'Woolsery'). It looks like I'll be OK in Tofino however I pronounce it..
