    How do you pronounce Metabo?

    How do you pronounce Metabo? Emphasis on the first syllable? The second syllable? The third syllable?
    Santa presented me with a Metabo 5" angle grinder. I don't want to embarrass myself by mispronouncing its name.
    Since it's manufactured in Germany, do I pronounce it in German?
    Since I'm using it in the U.S, do I pronounce it in English?
    Is there a difference?
    Happy Holidays.

    There shouldn't be an issue if you pronounce it in your own because no one will send you a legal notice you on its wrong pronunciation but still, it is most pronounced as "Meh-tta-boo"

    Dale, You have the right attitude.
    Mac702, You have the pronunciation that I have heard most often.
    I'll accept both of your kind advice.
    Thank you.

    I've always heard "Meh-TA-bow." I do not assert that to be authoritative.

    Stop trying to pronounce it, it is just a waste of time when you could be using it.......

    If it really bothers you pass it on to me, I could use a new one as my 15 year old Craftsman is dying and I don't care how it is pronounced...

    Merry Christmas...
