Finally it is time to answer what many of you no doubt have wondered and pondered about during many a sleepless nights; how to pronounce Baman.

The first mistake here is confusing the name with Batman, Banman, and similar.
The most striking difference in the pronunciation of these and Baman is the A.
Rather than uttering the As in bAmAn like "Æ", as you would in bAtmAn, the As are here pronounced like they would in Armour.
That is, AA as opposed to Æ.

Now let's try saying it out loud, B-AA-M-AA-N.
Now repeat that ten times every time you chant the litany of Good Taste in front of your Baman shrines, and before long, you will have mastered the fine art of pronouncing my glorious name, and will be ready to hail and salute my coming as the emperor of the world.

I've always pronounced it that way. From where I come from, people always pronounce english 'a's as hard 'A's, thus, why we're all terrible at english. No problemzu.

I always pronouced it as Baaman, the same way one would pronouce Brahman (from the Hindu religion).
