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

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".
