Just been watching some old episodes of QI and I wondered, since Fry is such a pedant, why he gets so many pronunciations wrong.

EG:
Is Stephen pronounced in the same way as Steven?

Is Davies pronounced in the same way as Davis?

Yes, and yes.

Welsh persons called Davies can get a bit annoyed if their name is pronounced "day-VEEZ".
