I was just looking at some old stuff of mine written in English and found a quote from ספורנו. I must have heard five different pronunciations of that name over the years: Siforno, Siporno, Sipurno, Sforno, etc. So I figured here would be as good a place as any to ask - Does any have any idea what the actual exact pronunciation should be?

Please see this post from Mississippi Fred for a more extensive investigation.

A little too late

Should've reposted this earlier. But if the דין isn't sealed until הושענא רבא, perhaps it is still relevant.
