Ok,

Up until last week I thought "Euler" was pronounced with a long "u" sound (like Euclid).

Since most of the famous names of science/math are names I have read, not heard, I was wondering if someone could give me the correct pronunciation of the following names (some of them seem pretty simple, but I thought Euler was too, so who knows now...):

L'Hopital

Gauss

De Moivre

Fourier

I'm sure there are others I'm forgetting, I'll add more as I think of them.

Thanks!
