The Diocese of Arlington

You've all read about the Diocese of Arlington: there will be two indult Masses instituted in the Diocese. And at the same time (in exchange?) every parish will get girl altar boys. If you haven't read about it yet, Elinor mentions it here and includes an agreeable comment. (Proof that, like Dave Barry, I don't make this stuff up.)

But what no one has mentioned and what I very much want to know is, how does one pronounce L-O-V-E-R-D-E ? Is it LOV-erd or Luh-VER-dee or even (one can only hope) LOV-er-day? It doesn't make any difference on the weblog, but sometimes I belabor people about this sort of stuff in person.
