Not sure if it's kosher to ask this here -- I was reading about Oliver Sacks and came across the name of a 19th century migraine expert he was inspired by, Edward Liveing. How do you pronounce Liveing?


According to Dr. Sacks (at 0:58), it's pronounced just as you would think: /laɪvɪŋ/, to rhyme with "driving" (not with "living").
