    I was listening to NPR yesterday, and some moron keeps mispronouncing Davies...I yelled at the radio a couple times...after calming down I thought...'well, England, hmm. Ralph is pronounced raif, so what do I know?' Wikipedia says it's pronounced Davis.

    Someone here must know them...how's it really pronounced?

    Well, I don't know either of them, but they just addressed that issue on NPR. They played a clip of one of their reporters talking to Ray Davies, and, according to the man himself, it's pretty close to "Davis" (actually, he said it sounds like it has a "z" on the end).

    It is pronounced closer to "Davis" rather than "Davees".
