hmm...so I presume it must also be EAR-Ran as opposed to Eye ran?

So I wonder why I keep hearing Eye Rack and Eye Ran...those people must not be regular posters to Fodors!

its ear-RON, just like ear-ROCK.

Or, alternately and more accurately, ear-RAHN and ear-RAHK - but that might be getting a bit too technical!

As to why you keep hearing people say EYE, one might hazard they are uneducated, untravelled, rude or don't care. Certainly not words that apply to Fodorites!

Or maybe we're just all a little confused about language and pronunciation after listening to the current US president for all these years !

You mean like misunderestimating EYE-Ran's nukyular capabilities?

Topping this older post for the heck of it. How do you pronounce Anegada? Annagodda??? That is how I am saying it in my head. Please advise...

That's pretty much it. An-neh-gah-dah with an accent on the "gah".
