Växjö pronunciation

Yes, it looks a bit weird and it sounds even weirder – the name of the city of Växjö.

The first time I read it, it looked already a bit funny. Later, when I heard how it was pronounced in the right way in Swedish, I found it even a little unpleasant – a bit like as if you choked on a piede of a cinnamon bun and tried to cough it up again. But, well, I got used to it – after a couple of years ;)
