OK, I know you're all wondering how I could bluner my way through the entire works of James Bond and not know how to pronounce George Lazenby's last name, but I managed! ;D

Remember that I was not around to witness the ads for On Her Majesty

I've always thought it as: lay-zen-bee.

Yes that's absolutely correct. That's how i've always said it, how everyone who talks about GL in documentaries says it and, as White Persian ppoints out, how George himself says it.
The only time I ever heard pronounced differently was by someone who wasn't a Bond fan and was from one of those certain parts of the US that say it that way. They pronounced it 'Laa-zin-bee'.

That's how George pronounces it.

I used to think it was Laz-en-by, but it must be Lay-zen-by. Thats they way I've heard it most.
