I never thought such a simple name could be such a source of ambiguity. But I've heard all sorts, ranging from: (please forgive me if my phonetic spelling isn't spot on)

'Waah' or 'Wawff' or 'Woah' and even a 'Wawg' once. (but that last one came from a ditz)

I favor 'Wawff' as in Waffle, but I always end up spelling it out when giving directions anyways, so it doesn't provide any clarity.

Like water - ter = Waah. Im confused as to how anyone would see Waugh and think it should sound like Waff.

Don't know who you've been talking to. I've only ever heard Waah.

Well when I read it, in my mind, I think 'Waa' as in water, but when I have to pronounce it (when giving directions), then it gets troublesome, I guess because it just sounds like they didn't hear the whole word, or something like that

I don't think I have ever heard it pronounced different and I hear it all the time from others and commercials on TV and radio and on traffic reports.

They probably see "laugh" with a "w" instead of an "l"... but laugh is the exception, not the rule.

It is Waah.
