    FidO.

    And in American continent - F eye dO?

    Yes, that's the way I pronounce it. It's not uncommon for people in different parts of the world to pronounce words differently.

    In western Canada for example, using the word theater. I pronounce it..

    Thee at er.

    My relatives in eastern Canada (Nova Scotia) pronounce it..

    Tea ate er.

    They drop the h in the pronounciation, although the spelling is the same.

    This is the Greek pronunciation, where Theta is a single
    letter, so no `th'.
